First Trip to the Dentist

Today was Gabriella's first trip to the dentist. They call it a "Happy Visit".

Auntie April works at a dental office (and they accepted our insurance) so we headed over this morning when Daddy could come along too!

She ran right behind the counter to see Auntie April and made herself quite at home. Here they are waving to mommy and Xander.

She had a lot of fun playing with the plastic animals in the waiting room. She told me which ones were mommies and which ones were daddies.

In the fun chair with Daddy. She is pointing at the tv screen that is showing her pictures of Daddy's teeth. 
The stuffed monkey she is holding is awesome. It has big teeth in it and a tooth brush to brush its teeth with. April had gotten it down for her to play with when we got to the office and she held it on her lap the entire appointment.

Checking out her teeth with the fancy mirror. 

Overall she did really good. We were worried about a couple lines on her front teeth but the dentist said that they were only surface stains and that the rest of her teeth looked really good. She didn't have any black spots or signs of decay. He said that we were doing a really good job with her teaching her about good dental hygiene. Phew! Such a relief and blessing to hear! We will be going back in about 6 months to get her teeth cleaned when she is a little bit older and can sit still for longer. 

Thanks so much to Auntie April and the staff at Dr. Johnston's office. If you are in Grants Pass and need a dentist, check them out!
