Well she showed me! She wasn't scared, not even a little bit. She sat on my lap facing me and watched the whole time I had my teeth cleaned. She had an apple so she chewed on that and watched carefully. Dr. Kunugi explained to her what he was doing and showed her all the tools. She even got adventurous and turned up the suction all on her own. And when we said something to her she turned it backdown too! Dental assistant Callie :)
She showed him her teeth but we didn't have her lay down as we wanted to keep it as positive as possible so she can learn the dentist is ok. If she keeps being so good we may try to clean her teeth at 2. Otherwise we might wait until 3. She will go back with me in April so we can see how she does for round 2.
The assistants let her pick a toy and a toothbrush from the bin. She is such a good teeth brushed that she chose two toothbrushes! And she showed them how she uses it. What a show off!
I was really amazed at how good she was. Big thanks to Eliana for coming just in case we had a meltdown. I am sure if she didn't come we would have had one for sure.
And a Big Belated Birthday to Christian. We celebrated his birthday today but it was actually yesterday. Sorry no photos of the cake but Callie enjoyed two bowls of strawberries and whip cream instead of cake. Yummy! We will be needing that toothbrush after all.
