I'm still in shock. Jack actually let someone look in his mouth, clean his teeth, and smooth out (file) the ones that were chipped. I am in absolute awe of this dentist and his practice. It was kid-friendly from the moment we walked in, especially all the sensory stuff for kids like Jack. They had a great time there! Jack and Livie sat in the same chair while the dentist looked at Liv's teeth first, and then Jack's. The room had several dental chairs in it with lots of kids going through the same stuff all together. They had the chance to see other kids doing it, too, so they were very at ease with the whole thing. Jack and Liv honestly looked like they were enjoying it all. Jack's favorite part was smelling the dentist's rubber gloves; he liked the smell. Heh.
We will definitely be going back there again. They even had a school calendar there so I could make their next appointment for when the kids and I were both off together. I am so impressed.
There were several forms I filled out prior to bringing them there. On one of them, I gave a little background on Jack. The dentist read it all, saw that "Cars" was one of Jack's favorite movies, and he put it on all the TV's in the place so Jack could watch it and feel comfortable! I swear, if I wasn't already married, I would've married that man before I walked out of there.
I hoped for the best, but was prepared for the worst. In the end, everything turned out wonderful. I don't think they'll ever be scared of the dentist, unlike me. That's all I want...better experiences for them. What a relief!
