First Dentist trip

Today, we took Emerson to the dentist for the first time.  He did a great job.  At first, the hygentist introduced him to all of the instuments and told him exactly what she was going to do.  Then he got to choose a pair of sunglasses to wear while she did the cleaning.  Then she cleaned and flossed his teeth.  He did great!  He just didn't like the light shining on his face, even with the sunglasses.  I was so proud of him for being so good while sitting on the chair. 

We had been preparing him for the trip for a while, and he was so proud when the dentist said his mouth was nice and healthy.  Then the dentist gave him a bunch of prizes, one being a timer to know that he has brushed long enough.  He loved it. 

Here he is with his newly cleaned, cavity free smile!

That's nice you could wait until he wasn't so little. And awesome he had no cavities. My baby, Danny, had to have a cavity filled in his front tooth when he was barely 1 year old. We've already had 3 dentist visits and he's not quite 2 1/2.
