Dentist Appointment

Today, Olivia had her first dentist appointment.  I was tempted to reschedule it, but since we already had to reschedule once, I didn’t want to do it again.  We went to Dr. Crystal Walker, a pediatric dentist, and it went awesome!!  I highly recommend it. . .especially for kids who have a tougher time with things like this.  They make it as comfortable as possible for kids.  Olivia got to lay down and watch Dora on a television attached to the ceiling.  They didn’t brush her teeth this time because Olivia was a little unsure about it and they didn’t want to push it.  But, she let them examine her teeth and put a fluoride treatment on them.  They sang the ABC song while they were doing it and Olivia sang along with them. . .her mouth open and all.  If only her eye doctor would take some tips from her dentist office, Olivia might be a bit more comfortable.  Olivia just needs a bit more TLC everywhere she goes.  They thought her teeth looked awesome (although she is still missing her top two molars.) I’ve always thought Olivia has beautiful teeth.  The only problem is that they  like to see spaces between baby teeth so that the permanent teeth will have room when they come in.   So, Olivia might have crowding issues in the future.  But, all is good for right now and she is a member of the no sugar bug club.   Way to go, Olivia!

We go to the same Dentist office and love it. Kinnick and Carver still cry when they get their teeth cleaned, but the doctor is sooooo nice. She sings the entire time and gives lots of breaks.

Her teeth are beautiful! I never thought about it meaning that she might have crowding later though. Well, most kids do end up needing braces so I guess there are worse things...I'm glad she did so well!

Olivia's teeth is beautiful. There's just a need of continuous care and regular visits to the dentist's office. In my case, I'm so happy that our family, especially my children has been under the care of the best dentistry Maryville, T.N. practice in our area. It made our dental health secured. Thanks for sharing, Jodi!
