IC's Dentist Visit


I wonder why it made me crazy thinking about IC and her dentist's appoinment when it would be one of the proudest moment with IC. She passed the dentist's visit yesterday with flying colors. And whoa, she's so cool about it.

I had to drag the girls from bed early. Nobody complained, I guess because they were still half awake. It was only when I was backing the car up from the driveway that they said, 'mama it is still too dark outside.' In which I answered, 'but the sun would soon greet us, am sure.'

And then I passed the turn for kindergarten and they finally asked, 'mama, where are we going?' Ooops, and I thought we have already prepared them both so well for the dentist's visit that was why there were so quiet sitting there in the back! I said, 'we are going to the dentist today.' A quiet 'oh' was the only response.

We always make sure that our doctor's appointment would be the first hour of the day so we would not have to wait. I am sure you know what I mean. So we were escorted inside one of the examination rooms where the toys are waiting for them in one corner. They had a few minutes to play before the dentist came with a big smile on her face. She talked casually with the kids before asking who would be the first to be examined.

I havent decided but right there and then I volunteered IC. MC didnt give me a promise to stay quiet when her turn's up, so I risked it with IC. She sat on my lap while the dentist asked her to count her the teeth. When she saw the IC needed treatment; she said we could try doing it now but when IC balked, we would immediately stopped. I nodded.

It took a while, more than 30 minutes, because the dentist showed all the tools and machines that she would use for the procedure. And she explained everything to IC. Even asking IC to touch and feel the movement of each tools. It went well, IC opened her mouth to the dentist and she didnt even flinched or cried out during the whole process. I was real proud of my little girl.

And of course, when it was MC's turn, she headed to the chair proudly alone. Didnt even ask me to hold her hand this time. And I heard nothing from her, too. I did the right thing in asking IC to be the first one on the chair.
Yet I do know, I have big girls now! Well, they ransacked the dentist's treasure chest for gifts afterwards. They deserve them, too!

I'm happy for you that you didn't have a drama scene at the dentist's office like some children. I remember my Lil K's first visit when she was around 2 and the pedia dentist is a Filipina! She was very good at putting the little one at ease. "Makarenyo"

I was really sad when the dentist had to leave the practice.

KK, i really do hope our dentist would stay in practice for a long long time. it would be hard to find another one like her esp since there are not so much lady dentists around here.
