Party Time at the Dentist's Office!

David and Julia had their semi-annual visit to Dr. Michael Kasselian, D.D.S., who both of our children look forward to seeing. For our healthy toothed children, they have no idea what other fun instruments lurk behind steralized compartments, so for them it's a fun doctor's visit.

After a short wait playing on the bean bag chairs, trying to get the attention of the clown fish in the fish tank, playing with stuffed animals, wondering what the black box (a.k.a. game system) over a smaller tv was for, watching part of the Ice Age movies, and looking through some books, it was time for their appointment. (It may not sound like it from the previous sentence, but it was actually a five minute wait.)

Sitting on the dentist chair, they had their teeth checked out, polished with bubblegum flavored tooth paste and then fluorinated with something equally as sweet. They even had their first X-rays as well, which not only showed healthy teeth, but also the big teeth lying in wait.

First set are Julia's top and bottom teeth:

Next were David's teeth.

Dr. Kasselian estimated that David's bottom/center teeth will be the first to go, probably within a year or so. David was very interested in his x-rays than Julia was with hers, and he was especially excited about his "big-boy" teeth hiding in his mouth.

When their appointment was through, David and Julia received the equivalent of a goody bag, filled with a new toothbrush, stickers, and two small toys. Neither one of them wanted to leave. It was only when saw me walking out the door did they figure I was serious and followed behind!

Sorry guys, but you have to wait six months before you go back to the dentist!
