Sophia Goes to the Dentist

This was Sophia's very first cleaning at the dentist. They are our family dentist, and recommended we bring her in at age three. I know some people take their children to a Pediatric Dentist, but I don't know of any around here.

I made the appointment for Sophia, for the same time Noah was to have his regular 6 months cleaning. Sophia has been with me when I've gotten my teeth cleaned, and with Noah, but I thought she might be nervous, or might have forgotten what it was all about. I wanted Noah to go first, so Sophia could see what they do, and then she'd be more comfortable. Well, she was so excited she wanted to go first, so I thought, 'why not?' Here she is, raring and ready to go!

She opened wide so the hygenist could look at her teeth...

She sat very still!

She was very patient, and was a perfect patient!

She let her polish her teeth...

and check them again...

Here she has the 'duck teeth', getting her flouride treatment.

Sucking out the extra flouride...


Proudly showing off her clean teeth! I'm so glad things went well at this appointment! She has a little cavity they want to take care of (oh no!) and will schedule her as soon as possible for that. That appointment won't be as fun, I'm sure!

Noah sits in the waiting room, listening to the Ipod, waiting for his turn.

Noah's a pro at the dentist, as he's been going for 5 years now!

So glad that things went so smoothly at the dentist! I was a horrible patient, so I was SOO relieved that Lily actually liked it.
Hope Sophia is a trooper when she gets her cavity filled - I think she'll be great!

Way to go Sophia! Don't you just love when things go so well. She'll be fine getting her cavity filled. My Sophia went back all alone and did wonderful!
