  • For their first visit they just looked at them with fingers and mirror then brush them. He didn't even floss them....

    He wanted it to be as much as home as possible. I've known parents that play checking teeth and letting the kids check teeth.... that can help them out :)

  • the dentist looked at and counted her teeth, brushed and flossed them, I found it helpful to take buy a "Visiting the Dentist" book, and taking it with us. I wouldn't say that it was unpleasent, but if not well prepared it could be! Trin was a champ, no tears, no fighting, all smiles.
