Toddler Dental Hygiene ( Momimhar posted on May 29th, 2013 )

It was Kaye’s first dental appointment three months ago.  For some reason, we got the chance to schedule her appointment with the dentist this year.  As recommended, a child’s first visit to the dentist should be before his or her first birthday particularly six months after the first tooth break thru the gums.  This is to prevent tooth decay as the doctor informs parents ways how to take care of young ones’ teeth.

The night before the appointment, I talked to my darling daughter about getting her teeth checked by a dentist.  I told her what to do like to open her mouth wide.  And I told her to behave when we are in the dentist’s office.   The schedule was eleven o’clock in the morning.  Since she is a new patient, we arrived at the office thirty minutes early for the paper work.  While waiting, my darling daughter got herself entertained with the toddler toys at the lounge.


Toddler toys – blocks, wooden puzzles, etc.


And of course she found a book. Her favorite hobby – reading.


Very curious with the things around her including that light. So she opened her mouth wide. 🙂

My darling daughter did a great job with her first dental appointment.  I thought will get scared or fussy.  But she didn’t.  She was very cooperative.  The dentist thought she’s very smart and a very good girl.  The next appointment is in October.

We got very hungry so we ate a big lunch at Chick-Fil-A nearby.  My cousin told me that the fast food restaurant has an indoor play area.  Well, what should I expect?  My little girl got in there after eating her lunch.


Climbing up the steps.


I loved this carnation flower.


There’s a hanging car up there. 🙂

I was happy that my little girl’s teeth is healthy.  The dentist reminded me to brush her teeth in the morning and before bedtime.  In the next appointment, he’s gonna do cleaning already.
