Syd's dentist appointment

Sydney had her 2 year dentist appointment with Dr. Mangrum (Canyon River Dental). Wow- that office is AMAZING! The second we walked in they said "Hurray, Sydney's here!" They had this lil' train that goes around the room which worked well to distract Syd. The hygienist was able to polish & floss Syds teeth & she did well with the dentist poking at her too. Then afterwards she got a toy & a free meal at Del Taco.

So, afterwards we had a lil' family lunch at Del Taco & talked about how great Syd did at her appointment. I was worried, but we've been "talking up" the dentist for a few days- teaching her how to show her teeth & how to open wide. I guess it paid off- she did really well!

Her facial expressions are SO funny. She looks so nervous in the picture of her in the chair.

that is so exciting! I'm really impressed she did so well! that's great they do so much to make it a positive experience, since dentists don't always get the best wrap! :) Good girl Syd!!

Wow...I can't imagine taking Elizabeth to the dentist. She barely let the doctor look in her ears. Not the most cooperative child.

I'm SO proud of Sydney! As a former RDA at a pedo office, I KNOW this is a BIG deal!
