Visitin' the Dentist!

Ellie had her first dentist visit yesterday. I know she likes brushing her teeth, but I wasn't sure how she would be having a stranger check her teeth. She did awesome! The hygienist said sometimes she can take x-rays, and sometimes the little ones won't have anything to do with it, Ellie did great. She let her put the heavy bib on, with a big smiley face, and bit down on the film while she got her x-rays taken. Then she let her clean her teeth while she watched Alvin and The Chipmunks on the ceiling screen. The dentist came in and counted her teeth, she must have had enough because he didn't say anything about it. He said her teeth looked great and we were doing a good job.
Afterwards, she got a spinning Cinderella toothbrush and the hygienist made her a flower balloon! The Kids Dental Barn was so kid friendly, it made going to the dentist fun for her and she loves using her new toothbrush too.

What a great kid! You guys have made her feel so loved and confident that all these first things, hospitals, dentists, hair cuts.....she handles terrifically! I sometimes hear parents use dentists and doctors as "threats"...and then wonder why their kids are afraid to go there!
