    DD at Dentist

    DD did great at the dentist yesterday. It was her first real appointment and they were surprised at what she let them do. She let them look at, count, polish, and floss her teeth. She was sitting in my lap the whole time and was holding her doll so that probably helped. She got a toy when she was done.

    DS is a totally different story. He's four and has sensory issues. He barely let the hygenist look at and count his teeth; forget about polishing. He wouldn't even let the dentist look at his teeth. He did get a toy since he improved from his last appointment.
