MC had her first visit to the dentist a few weeks ago! I didn't know that February is National Children's Dental Health month, so that was a fun coincidence for her first ever dental check-up! We have a very good friend who is the office manager at one of the pediatric dental offices in Durham, so we chose their office on her recommendation.
Checking out all the toys in the waiting room. They also have a large fish tank that she was interested in.
Getting comfortable in the chair. She didn't actually sit in the chair for the exam, but she had fun playing in it!
Meeting the Dr and getting acquainted. He was excellent with her and really took his time letting her warm up to him.
We did what they called a knee-to-knee exam, where she sat in my lap and leaned back into the Dr's lap.
She wasn't exactly thrilled with the situation but was very calm the whole time, and he was able to do a pretty thorough exam on her.
Her teeth look great, so we'll just continue what we're doing and head back in 6 months for another check-up!
