1st Dentist Appointments
On Wed. 4/6/11, we took the kids to the dentist for the first time. We chose to go with a Pediatric Dentist whom several friends had recommended. Both Cole and Gwen seemed very excited about the appointment. They loved all of the fun toys and books in the waiting room and even got to sit on the counter to get their pics taken for their certificates. Then we went back to one room to speak with the dentist, Dr. Gordon. She talked to us for a little while and explained how she would do the exams. She then showed the kids each piece of equipment and explained how she would use each item. Dr. Gordon and Daddy held each child as he/she got the exam. Gwen laid down first and did not make a peep. She opened her mouth and followed all of our directions. Cole was equally as excited for the exam however, after being held down for all of two seconds, he started squirming and complaining. Poor man :( Dr. Gordon said that he did very well all things considered. He especially loved his new Tigger toothbrush and taking a turn in the big dental chair. Both kids got to choose a prize (blow up balls) and had fun playing with them later in the day.
