On Monday Emma experienced her first dentist visit and in her words "it went great"! Every book and pediatrician recommends taking kids at a different age, but we finally decided that it was time to kick start this healthy habit.
She requested that her daddy accompany her. He called immediately after with a wonderful report. Thankfully she takes after her daddy with no cavities and a healthy set of chompers :) As you can see, she also takes after him with these tan legs:
When I initially scheduled the appointment they told me that this would be considered a "happy visit". They would first take a peek and if she allowed they would continue with the full examination, cleaning and fluoride rinse. I must admit that I was super impressed and surprised that they were able to do the whole package! I think it must have really helped that we had prepared her for it well in advance.
We are so proud of how brave she was! We are also so glad that she has a positive feeling about going back to the dentist. She was so excited to pick out a new toothbrush, toothpaste, floss and even a pretend butterfly tatoo. We should expect for her first tooth to fall out between ages 5-6.
All smiles :)
