Teeth Cleaning!

Amie had a big day at the dentist on Tuesday, April 1, 08. She was really brave but honesty, I was mad that she had to be...We got the "fill in" hygienist who obviously had NO CLUE how to work with children. I told her immediately that Amie gags easily - as in, every time we brush her back teeth. Did this influence the ole' professional to give her baby size ex ray squares? No. She just tried to shove them in and Amie almost threw up 15 times before she called it quits. "She's too little," she turned to me and said. No kidding, idiot, did the GAGGING give that away?

But the upside to this go getter was that she cleaned the crap out of Amie's teeth - an hour's worth. Used all the adult drills and such - because "your daughter was so brave I just used everything." Thanks for the white teeth, although Amie will probably NEVER want to go to the dentist again. I'm hoping the kitty from the treasure box at the end made it all worth it. That, or the movie I bought her after!

Aww. We just did a family trip to the dentist. They took too long with Dallas so we never got to Tylie (I figured she could wait another year anyways). Dallas had a ton of cavities! Way to go Amie!

It's a shame that you had a bad experience with your dentist. There are dentists that are specially trained to handle kids. I would advice that next time, ask them first if he or she can do dental work on children before having your kids sat on the chair. This will also reduce the kid's fear of the dentist or dental procedures.
