Wednesday, we took Jayden to his first appointment at the dentist. We knew we were in for a meltdown, but surprisingly, aside from a few I want Daddy‘s, he did really well! Of course Jayden’s delightful experience wouldn’t have been possible without the super kid friendly environment and the compassion shown by the entire office staff and dentist!
Check out this room!
He was given sunglasses to shield the overhead light. Cool!
The toothbrush had a penguin attachment!
Something pleasant to look up at!
Redeeming his token for a bouncy ball.
They also gave him a goodie bag with floss and a new toothbrush!
His hygiene is very good and the dentist recommended that he floss and spend extra time brushing his molars since he’s got some deep grooves. Since they didn’t want to do too much on his very first visit, he’ll go back later this month for X-Rays.
P.S. I won’t lie, I wanted to sob… just a little.
At what age did your child start going to the dentist? How’d it go?
