Today Emmie had her first trip to the dentist! I wasn't sure how it would go especially because Ellie was with us too and Emmie woke up sooo whiney this morning. We went to Ellis, Green, and Jenkins because that's where Mikey and Lucy go and their mom has always told me how great they are. Well I was sooo pleased! Their office is beautiful and very open and kid friendly. They even have a movie room and a game room where you can sit while you wait! Each chair in the exam room had it's own TV. They had a gazillion different flavors of toothpaste too...strawberry (which Emmie picked), watermelon, orange, chocolate, and cookie dough to name a few! The hygenist was phenomenal and did a really good job explaining everything to Emmie and letting her touch and look at all the equipment. Emmie was super cooperative and I was so proud of her! The only thing that seemed to get her a little worried was when they leaned her chair back to clean her teeth...haha! After they finished cleaning her teeth and Dr. Amy (aka Dr. Green) came in and looked at them, Emmie got a whole bag full of prizes! She got a tshirt, toothpaste, toothbrush, floss, a pencil, stickers, a little chalkboard and chalk! The hygenist and Dr. Amy said that Emmie's teeth looked great! When we go back in 6 months Ellie is going to get her teeth checked too...hopefully she'll be as cooperative as Emmie!
Emmie has a chipped tooth in the front so they did an xray just to check it. The hygenist was very patient in explaining how to bite on the xray piece and after a few minutes Emmie got it figured out. Doesn't she look so tiny in that chair?
