I’m always a little apprehensive taking the kids to the dentist. I’m worried that they will have a bad experience.
Lily goes back with the dental hygienist all by herself. I rarely get pictures of her. Of course, she picked a blue toothbrush!
Navy isn’t sure yet. He likes to have Mommy stay with him. Though, he knows where the toys and stickers are when he’s done!
No cavities for either kiddo!!
I had horrible experiences at the dentist when I was younger. It seemed like I always had cavities, partially because I have weak enamel. When the dentist would fill them, he always used nitrous oxide, which didn’t take full effect. He didn’t believe me when I said I could still feel the pain of the drill.
I’m grateful that my kids haven’t had a scary experience, minus Navy’s anxiety of an unfamiliar and sterile environment.
And, I hopefully have another 6 months before I have to worry about this again.
