Primera Visita al Dentista / First Appointment to the Dentist

El pasado 20 de octubre mis niñas tuvieron su primera cita en el dentista. En esta ocasión no tuvimos ningún inconveniente con el plan médico pero, no fue color de rosa la visita. Como siempre yo les dí un poquito de sicología con relación a la visita y que el Doctor revisaría sus dientes, y todo el bla,bla,bla que uno les dice. Pues todo fue bien hasta que les tocó el turno de sentarse en la silla. Comenzó el llanto y el decir que no se sentarían. Gracias a Dios el dentista es excelente y supo manejar la situación con ellas (él tiene tres niños así que sabe lo que es esto). En definitiva, no pudieron hacerles la limpieza pero al menos, él pudo ver que no tenían caries y que Sofía ya tenía todos sus dientes mientras que Paola, estaba en ese momento despuntando las muelas.

Pero, aún del llanto que tuvieron el Doctor les regalo un hermoso cepillo de dientes de las princesas de Disney (él sí sabe ganarse a los niños), y ellas estaban emocionadas con su nuevo cepillo. Ahora, tendremos que esperar un poco para hacer la limpieza. Pero, la recomendación que nos dió de continuar llevando a las niñas a nuestras citas con él de manera que le pierdan el miedo así que mañana irán conmigo y verán mientras me realizan un pequeño trabajito en mis dientes pero poco a poco se llega muy lejos.

Que tengan una hermosa semana

Cariños

On October 20th my girls had their first appointment with the dentist. In this occasion we had no problem with the medical plan but not everything was this easy. As usual I had to use some psychology before the visit, told them about the dentist and what was going to happen in the office. Therefore all went well until it was their turn to seat down on the chair. They started crying and refused to sit down. Thanks God the dentist is excellent and knew haw to handle the situation with them (he has three children of his own so he knows what to do). At the end, he could not complete the cleaning but at least, he was able to see that they did not have ant tooth decay and that Sofía already had all her teeth while Paola still misses a couple of molars.

Although they were crying, the Doctor gave them a beautiful Disney princess toothbrush (he knows how to win children confidence). They were excited with their new brush. Now, we will have to wait a little to do the cleaning. But, the recommendation he gave us was to continue taking the girls to our appointments with him so they will start to lose fear, so tomorrow they will go with me to my appointment and see while the dentist works on my teeth, step by step we can get very far.

Have a beautiful week.

Affections

I remember Kota's first trip to the dentist. I don't think we got a good dentist. They got frustrated with Kota. Kota didn't cooperate well, either.

I think we have to go again in Dec. Not looking forward to it.

Yay for no tooth decay!
Who likes going to the dentist anyway?! I know I don't. The girls will get used to it!

Awe poor girls. I am happy to hear it at least ended well. My girls were pretty good on their first trip but for some reason they are not excited to go back. LOL

Looks like Z when he goes to the dentist! It took Z two visits before he would let them clean his teeth. Then he hurt his front tooth and had many visits to determine if it had to be removed. It did and he is now traumatized by the whole experience and so his last dentist visit was AWFUL. I am sure your girls will be fine with it in time :)

Have a great week!
