We have been planning to take Owen to his first dentist appointment for quite some time, but have not called and made him an appointment. We decided it was finally time. We found a pediatric dentist in Greensboro that is great with kids and tries to make the experience as fun as going to the dentist can be! We had some other things going on that day, so Brent took the day off to take him. His appointment was at 9:15, so B and Owen left and had breakfast at Tex and Shirley's so Brent could indulge in a lumberjack breakfast!!
O did good at the appointment. He was a little apprehensive about letting the hygienist use all of the things in his mouth, but at least he got oriented with what happens at the dentist. The dentist checked his teeth out and said everything looked great, no cavities and his bite was very good.
They took his picture to remember his first visit and afterwards he got to pick out a toy and a sticker. Of course we had already told him about his 'goodie bag' he would get afterwards. You wouldn't think a new toothbrush and toothpaste would interest a 3 year old, but we were wrong. All the way home, Brent said he played with his new tooth brush. Glad his exam went well.
Later that day, O had his 3 year old check up (I know, we were a little behind on this). He had a great report and was 34.5 pounds and 39 inches tall. (40th percentile for weight and 60th for height). Such a blessing to get such good reports. He is growing up so fast!
