First Trip to The Dentist

Well, the miss had her first dental appointment today. She saw a special on Reading Rainbow a couple of days ago that was all about the dentist, and she asked me to take her. Since I had an appointment the next day, I made an appointment for her as well. So, today we went.
How our dentist handles it, is they call it a happy visit. They first introduce the child to all the dental type stuff and then do whatever the child allows them to. They don't push anything.
But the miss sat right down on the chair, all smiles, with her mouth open wide. The hygienist could tell that this was going to be a good visit. And the miss actually stayed for 45 minutes, getting the entire cleaning. They even tried x-rays, but the miss had a hard time biting the plate the correct way, so they decided to try next time.

Opening wide like an alligator. She was ready for the cleaning.
