So this was the girls' second appointment, which was rescheduled from December. Apparently, those Saturday appointments fill up fast. At their first appointment, the hygienists didn't really clean their teeth. I have read some horror stories of first dentist appointments where the kids are basically held down to have their teeth cleaned. Not here. They like to take it slow so the kids don't flip out.
This time, the girls did have their teeth cleaned for real. (Or should I say 'for reals.') Rich and I were so impressed by how well the girls did. No crying. No fussing. No flipping out. Anna was a little scared to have the chair back too far but that was it.
No big surprises in terms of their teeth. The hygienists pointed out areas where tartar had built up and we were told to start saving now because they all have teeth very close together, which we knew. In addition to my awesome singing abilities, the girls have also inherited some aspects of my teeth. I had to have adult teeth pulled because my teeth were too crowded.
Allie and Anna played dentist a lot this weekend. I think all of the family dollhouse folks have had thorough exams and cleanings at this point. I was laughing hysterically about this little misunderstanding. For both toothpaste and fluoride, the girls were asked what flavor they wanted? Bubble gum, banana, strawberry, etc. While the girls were playing dentist, they kept saying, "Okay, let me get the food in your mouth. What do you want? Banana? Strawberry?"
