Chloee's first trip to the dentist - Mixed reviews

By the age of 3 my boys had all had a turn at the dentist at least once.  It was a regular thing that they knew happened and it was no big deal.

A little later of a start with Chloee and since she hates having her teeth brushed, I was afraid it wasn't going to go over well.  I originally planned to take her the pediatric dentist that all my boys went too, but when I realized that the dentist Karalee works for sees kids, I figured it might be a better experience if her friend was the one to polish her teeth.

I may have been overly optimistic.

It all started out nice and innocent with some books in the waiting room.

and toys with Karalee

Was okay getting in the magic chair

Even the bib was okay

Little wary when the chair started moving back and down

Loved the headphones and the movie on the ceiling

Smiles at this point

But now that people want to get in her mouth, she is not having so much fun


But all is forgiven, when she gets to choose a prize from the treasure chest.

Great job to the dentist's office and their staff.  They were kind, patient and didn't push her.  Hopefully next time, we will get a little further but for now at least she knows how it all works!

my baylee has a mega fear of the's laughing gas for her every time she needs something more than a cleaning.

I feel the same way she does. I want a dentist who has movies in the ceiling...

I hate going to the dentist and I used to be a dental assistant. What does that say?

I feel the same way about the gynecologist.

Where is that dentist? That place looks super familiar.
