A Trip to the Dentist

Both kiddos visited the dentist this week. The hygienist was amazing- she showed Penny each tool, explained what she'd be using it for and let her touch and hold them so it wouldn't be so scary. She got to choose her flavors of toothpaste and fluoride. She picked watermelon and banana and told the hygienist that her brother would like those too. Penny was brave and seemed like such a big girl throughout her exam. The dentist came to look for princesses inside her mouth. She didn't mind and I think she wanted him to find one :)
Porter was not a huge fan of his first dental exam. He didn't want to sit in the chair and didn't like the taste or texture of the toothpaste. But overall, he did better than Penny did at her first visit last year. I hope that by the time we go back, he will forget this. I'll sit in the chair with him next time.
Both kids received a clean bill of dental health. And mommy and daddy were happy with the experience!
