We brought Emma for her first visit to the dentist recently. In the past, my kids began seeing the dentist at least once a year when they turn 2. So it was the same for little Emma. We make it a family affair where everyone gets their teeth checked. It’s a good practice and it’s something I would recommend for all families.
Here she is browsing the reading material in the waiting area…
I had told her about it so she would be prepared, and she watched as Hannah and Ethan took their turns sitting in the chair.
When it was Emma’s turn, she was very confident and ready to go. The chair was HUGE compared to her, and the dentist gently coaxed her to open her mouth so he could look at her teeth.
I was actually surprised when the dentist told us that all her incisors and canines were there! I had thought Emma was missing an incisor all this while! She now has 18 teeth with 2 more molars to come soon.
Good job, Emma! 🙂
