1st Dentist Trip

Today Hailee had her first dentist appointment. We have been talking about it for about a week getting her prepared for it all. There was actually a thing on dentists on Sesame Street. They talked all about what the dentists do and made it seem so fun. After Hailee learned all about the dentist she was talking about what kind of toothpaste she wanted her teeth cleaned with. How I miss the small things in life.

When we got there I had to fill out some paper work and next thing I knew we were on our way to the back. Hailee got to brush her teeth (by herslef). Then we walked to the back and Hailee got to pick out a stuffed animal (all the animals had big mouths with teeth). She picked out a horse (obvious). The lady said her name was Henryetta the Horse. LOL! Hailee got to help clean the Henryetta's teeth and see what all the different tools were that were going to be used in her mouth.

Once Hailee was done cleaning Henryetta's mouth it was time to get her teeth cleaned. The lady got Hailee to lay on the table and she talked Hailee through it all and sang songs as she was checking her teeth and cleaning them. It was pretty cool! I wish dentists would do that while working on my teeth. I think I would probably go more often :o).

After Hailee got her teeth cleaned they took her to get her teeth X-rayed. The x-ray pictures were so cool. The pictures showed her teeth but then showed all her permenant teeth coming through her jaw bone. It was really cool! LOL!

Hailee was such a big girl! She didn't say a word the whole time, but she had a huge smile on her face the entire time.
