Thursday morning, we headed to Mallory's first dental appointment. We've been talking to her about going since we made the appointment so she wouldn't be scared or surprised about anything. It helped that Mallory's dentist is one of best friends growing up, Melissa, so we just talked about going to see Mrs. Melissa and opening real big so she could see all of her teeth.
Since it was her first time, Melissa said they just do as much as the child will let them do. They don't push anything on them because they want them to have a good first experience.
I was really impressed with Melissa's office because it was so kid friendly. When we got there, they had all of the new patients names on the board.
First stop was to get X-Rays. Mallory was a little hesitant at first but once she got in the chair, she was good to go.
Next, it was time to go to the Elephant room for teeth cleaning. They were playing Tangled on the TV on the ceiling and Mallory loved it!
She got her teeth cleaned and said she loved the water they sprayed after her cleaning
Finally, Melissa came in to give a final look and she said the X-Rays looked good and no cavities! She told her she did a great job on all that they needed to do. She counted Mallory's teeth and said everything looked good!
I'm so glad that Melissa comes up to the Rockwall office once a month so we can take Mallory to see her!
Melissa and I got to chat for a good bit before we left so it was nice to catch up with her
Mallory got a bag of goodies, including a new Dora toothbrush. She couldn't wait to open it when we got home!

Another first is complete! Love her sweet smile!
