A few months ago, D needed a LOT of work done in his mouth. He might be going into 3rd grade, but he is horrid about brushing well without help from Mom and Dad.
When he became rather uncooperative for the family dentist in town, I went in search of a pediatric dentist in the ‘big city’ of Anchorage. We found Denali Pediatric Dentistry on our insurance list and scheduled an appointment.
After talking with the dentist during D’s appointments, I discovered that they see toddlers on a regular basis. So, I scheduled an appointment for J to go when D had his 6 month check up.
J enjoyed the wait in the waiting room as it is quite child friendly.
They do ask you do not snap photos during the exam, so I only have one good one of J trying on some sunglasses. I found that a great idea for the younger patients…sunglasses to block the brightness of those exam lights!
The exam went well. She commented about how well he did for the exam (which is far shorter than an adult one) considering he hasn’t even turned 2 yet. J was excited to leave with a new toothbrush, some toothpaste and his own toy ‘duckie’ with a theme.
Here’s hoping that the next appointment for J and D goes well and D won’t have more work to do. (He had to come back later that month for a broken molar to be repaired and a stainless crown placed on another molar.
