Dear Dental Gods:
I don't know what I did to deserve your kindness and generosity, but I am totally and eternally grateful.
Love, kisses, and flossing daily,
After a slight mix up about where to be (didn't know that the dentists' office had more than one location until I went to the wrong one, natch), I had the paperwork filled out and the kids were being called back. Now, I realize that I've never actually been to a pediatric dentist office before this, but color me impressed. The staff was great and the kids actually got seen at the same time side by side. Very cool. I didn't have to choose to be in one child's room over the other, I got to sit in the middle of where they both were.
The kids were so amazing. They cooperated fully with the entire process and were smiley and giggly the entire time. The dentist and hygienists complemented me on their behavior (and gave the kids extra prizes for being so good).
I gotta say it, I kind of want to go to a pediatric dentist. Cookie dough flavored toothpaste? Sunglasses so the bright light doesn't bother you? A variety of awesome flavors for fluoride treatments (including marshmallow)? Toys at the end?
Sometimes growing up kinda stinks.
