First Visit {Wordless Wednesday With Linky}

The twins had their first ever dentist appointment last week, a ‘friendly visit’ as they like to call them. All went well and they have been asking to go back, there’s one less ‘parenting thing’ to worry about!

Do your kids like going to the dentist?

    1. I must have had great experiences as a kid, I actually love the dentist. Let me rephrase, for cleanings. Not for any major stuff. lol

  1. I wish my daughter was that happy at the dentist! She has to be sedated when she get work done πŸ™

    1. Oh no! That’s been my fear since I have so many friends that have to go through the same thing. So far so good {knocking on wood!}

    1. Teresa you could not have said it better!
      Cheers to a fellow twin mom that survived the school years and still has a great sense of humor!

  2. They didn’t like it the first time! Mica was sick the first time. I found that out after he went. He got the stomach flu. Isaak was just scared. Now they are great with it. They don’t want to leave. I think they are a lot better about making kids feel secure now a days.

  3. Cute! I go with my kids to the dentist since they were 2 yrs old. I think they like to go there, because they always get a little present. πŸ˜‰
    Happy WW!

    1. Thats nice! I wish I had one in the family! That and a chiropractor, I could use one of those. Wait, add a masseuse to that list too. ok, I’ll stop now {and a doctor}.

  4. I am dreading that first visit because I am so going to have to fake how FUN it is to be there!@!!! LOL!

  5. only just had a first visit? Wow, my dentist was giving me grief I didn’t bring my kids in until they were 2 or so. Apparently the first visit should be age 1!!

    1. Oh really? Mine said it’s good at 1 or 2 too, but since they/we brush so well and they have good teeth with enough spacing to get all the ‘gook’ out, we were good {for now anyway, though 2 out of my 3 will most likely need braces}. So, an earlier visit wasn’t necessary. Yet, I think I did take my oldest when she was 2….

  6. My first 2 didn’t mind the dentist at all. Now the 3rd is just plain scared.

    Happy WW!

  7. I’m glad they did so well! My older two don’t mind the dentist, but I need to bring my younger two in. Scheduling that appointment is on my to-do list for this week!

    1. I was there 4 times last week, never again will I book all of us for visits in one week, it was too much!!

    1. Hmmm, wonder what we can get them to do for a 10 cent plastic ring? I think I need a treasure box in my house!! lol

  8. That first visit to “count your teeth” really helps. The toy chest at the end of the visit doesn’t hurt either. M loves our dentist and hygienist. He always gets fussed over and they make him so comfortable.

  9. Looks like it was a successful visit. My kids love the dentist too, but my oldest just got braces. I feel like we live there now. I am the one that dreads the appointments!

    1. Oh no! I was told that most likely 2 of my 3 will need braces, for sure 1. I’ll be there soon, dreading all those appts already!

    1. Yes, that does help a ton. So far no bad experiences too, it only takes one and their attitude can change!

  10. lol, 3rd times a charm I hope for me.. for some reason my son HATES going! lol ..even if it’s just for me o get a clean up or exam…

  11. My oldest (4) didn’t mind going to the dentist at all, but my 3 year old freaked out when he saw the dentist.

  12. My 3 children love the dentist. They always have. They also enjoy veggies too. They are weird that way.

  13. E isn’t fond of the Dentist but hopefully he will grow on her. Unfortunately when she had to see the dentist last week, it was an emergency situation and pretty traumatic for her =(

  14. They are so cute! I hated going as a kid but today the dentists are so much more kid friendly and the kids typically like to go!

  15. My daughter doesn’t seem to mind the dentist. She is now 24. I remeber one time in particular that she went to the dentist…she was maybe 7 and she needed to have some freezing done. I don’t remember what for but she doesn’t have even 1 filling to date. I told her in the car how proud I was of her and she didn’t even mind having the needles. She looked at me and said, “I didn’t have any needles Mummy”. She did, at least 2 needles but because I tried to make the dentist a ‘friendly’ experience and perhaps because we have a wonderful dentist…she didn’t feel them or even notice!! πŸ™‚ I hate going to the dentist and I didn’t want her to have that same fear.

  16. I remember my oldest daughters first dental visit, I think I was more nervous than her. She had a blast and loved having her pic taken for the “No Cavity Club”

  17. Love the photo! My daughter has been to the dentist a few times, unfortunately the first dentist was awful so we had to do a few months of therapy-like-dentist-visits! Lots of rides in the chair, lots of bouncy balls to take home πŸ™‚ Her last visit she did great! She is 4 year old so she had her teeth scaled for the first, couldn’t believe she let them do it πŸ™‚

  18. Mine loved going to the dentist then changed his mind – hoping he changes it back again soon!
