Has your 2/3 yr old been to the dentist yet?

Landon has had several cleanings. I take all 3 of my boys at one time so he sees his big brothers getting their teeth cleaned as well. He isn't the best at keeping his mouth open, but he's getting a bit better. We have an appointment next week so I'm hoping he does as well as he has in the past!

DD and DS have been going since they were two. We had no problem till our Dentist went on maternity leave the new one the kids hated. I am going to wait till she comes back before I schedule. It was a total waste the kids screamed wouldn't open their mouths and the Dentist was suppose to be a Pediatric Dentist but he didn't seem that he liked little kids.

Oh boy! I wonder why someone would even try to work with children if he/she didn't like them! I don't blame you about waiting until your regular dentist returns. I'd be doing the same!

In fact, now that you mention it, our regular dentist has moved so we will be seeing someone new tomorrow. I'm a bit nervous! However, my boys just love the office so hopefully that's what matters. They have a TV in each room and balloons and prizes for when they leave. They also get to put their name into the no cavity club drawing when they qualify (which has been every time so far!) so that makes them super exited. Fingers are crossed that everything goes smoothly tomorrow!
