the dentist

Ty had his first dentist appt.
 The only instruction from our pediatrician is to go before you are three. Since Ty turns three right around the time the baby comes and Kinley hasn't seen a dentist since she got her tooth pulled a year and half ago, I figured it was time.
When we moved into our new house we got a flyer for Pediatric Dentistry of Colleyville with Dr. Loria and we tried her out and we loved her!
We knew we were set up for success when they were showing Frozen in the waiting room and had a little welcome sign with each kids name that day on a tooth.
  How cute!?
Kinley did great and went in all by herself. No cavities and keep brushing good and flossing at night. Ty did great too.  He got a cleaning where they let him watch "Cars" on a ceiling TV and wear some cool shades. Also no cavities for him and keep up the brushing.
Before we left they had taken a picture of both kids with Dr. Loria and printed it out for us to take home since it was Ty's first visit to the dentist. How sweet!?
We took some more pics with Dr. Loria and all their dentist swag. She makes the balloon animals herself. Go ahead and rub in all your talent Dr. Loria.

And what kind of mom would I be if I didn't reward a good trip to the dentist with ice cream?!
So bad.
At least we did wait the allotted 30 minutes after our fluoride treatment for the ice cream right!?

Well, that's a relief ain't it? Better that your kids start off with their dental visits early and pleasant. It's all about first impressions. Those are what will determine their drive to keep that on well into their later years. That, and I guess, ice cream. Haha!

I love it when a trip to the dentist seem like a really fun experience to kids, by virtue of it being a whole other activity or even an adventure. Perhaps, older folks will get to read your post and try and emulate that kind of outlook, so that dental maintenance will be a vital part of their lives as well.

Another proud parent moment, isn’t it? It’s another milestone that you can look back to when they're finally all grown up. Good thing you were able to find a reliable dentist, one who knew how to make the kids at ease. Anyway, I hope they'll be able to maintain a sound oral health for years to come. Have a great day!
