The Dentist

Van had his first visit to the dentist the end of last month. We went to the dental clinic at Primary Children's Medical Center. It was a great experience for him and for me. Both the hygienist and the dentist were great with him; taking the time to show him the tools, explain each step, and allow for him to get comfortable with the situation. There was even a little TV on the ceiling.

Van did an excellent job holding still and following instructions. Overall, he received a good report. His teeth and gums appear to be healthy, but I was instructed to floss daily due to excessive crowding. Apparently he has large teeth and a small jaw, which causes overcrowding. He also has overjet and will definitely have to have braces one day. (Good thing his daddy is going to be a dentist).

He looks like he had a good time. Hope he loves his future dentist ;)

Van's attitude and happy smile would be good advertising for any pedodontist.
