Chloe Post: The Dentist

Today, Mommy took me to the dentist for the first time! It's very confusing at the dentist. Usually, Mommy and I brush my teeth in the morning, so I was confused as to why some lady in a mask needed to do the same thing! However, I got a very cool new toothbrush, so I was ok with it... the first time! Then, another lady came in and tried to do the same thing! How many times do teeth really need to get brushed in a one hour time span? The ladies also looked in my mouth with a mirror (which no one let me keep) and counted my teeth. They said my teeth looked really healthy and they said how pretty I am.

When you go to the dentist, you have to fill out a lot of forms. Mommy helped me with the writing. She said, "do you use any recreational drugs?" and everyone in the waiting room laughed.

Mommy and I sat in this big chair for the hygenist and the dentist to look at my teeth. I brought along Baby Bear for moral support. He can't really relate, though.

He has no teeth.

Yes, you are such a pretty girl, darling! There's no doubt why your teeth are healthy because mommy's always brushing your teeth. =) Keep it up, little girl!

So brave and she an ideal for those we feel fear from dentist. Being as dentist I can say this all become possible because she feel familiar with dentist and staff. In the same way if adult do this, they also can reduce the fear level of dentist before the treatment of dental implants, dental veneers, etc. :D
