I took Mckinley for her first time to the dentist. I am terrified of the dentist, hate going, always have, and I really didn't want it to be the same for her. So I tried to tell her how fun it was going to be and get her really excited for it.
She did really well. Cried a little during the x-rays (I don't blame her, it always hurts so bad when those things poke your mouth when you bite down on them, did I mention I hate going to the dentist?) but they were able to get x-rays on both sides.
Then the dentist just counted and checked her teeth real quick and we were done. No cavities! Yay! I have horrible teeth (which is probably why I hate the dentist) and Brandon has perfect teeth. I have been so worried my kids would get my teeth so I have done everything I can with Mckinley. Fluoride since she was 6 months old, and brushing morning and night. So far her teeth look great. I still hope she got Brandon's genes.
I took her out for a hot fudge sundae after for doing so good. (When is she going to have a good "camera" smile???)
