Shelby's 1st Dentist Appointment

Shelby had her first real dentist appointment on 10/18/12. She's had her teeth checked before and her pediatrician has put fluoride treatment on her teeth before but not a full appointment.
At 3 1/2 years old it was time for a real appointment. So I took her to a children's dentist.
They said that at her age they usually do an exam bit don't get much further. Shelby was so brave and sat still for an exam, a full cleaning AND X-rays! Everyone was so impressed! She did a great job!!!
Her teeth looked great too; no cavities! There was a few spots in the back that we need to brush better and start flossing but all in all very good.

One of the ways we kept her still was to tell her that if she let the lady clean her teeth they would be like princess teeth. :)

So proud of my girl!


  1. Another important part of pediatric dentistry is the nutritional advice its practitioners provide their patients. Children, being children, will eat their fair share of sweets that will eventually lead to cavities and tooth decay. This is one of the reasons why children should see their dentist twice each year. Furthermore, pediatric dentists can also teach them the correct way to brush and floss their teeth.

  2. When you're planning to take your kid to a dentist, it's recommended that you visit a pediatric dentist. It is because pediatric dentists are much more qualified and experienced to deal with the problems of children's teeth.
