The Whole Tooth - Nothing But. . .

I went to the dentist today. 2.5 hours to get my teeth cleaned. He's very thorough. He said I had great gums and I do a good job taking care of my teeth. He also provided a consultation resulting in a recommendation of $14,000 worth of minor corrections he could make. He promised that once I had these procedures I would have a perfect mouth of teeth that would bring great honor to my family.

Allie went to the dentist today. She likes going to the dentist and did a great job of convincing her sister that a good teeth cleaning is about as much fun as a person can have.

Julia had her turn in the chair. It was nothing like her first visit to the dentist. This time there was no screaming, no kicking, just a few uncomfortable moments when Allie got a little carried away with "Mr. Thirsty" - but otherwise Deb and I felt very grateful.

Yeah; it definitely was a family affair. I was really surprised at how involved the hygienist allowed Allie to become. In fact, I almost asked for a discount considering the amount of work Allie contributed.

I guess this means the only person in the house with a filthy mouth is Debbie.

God bless her.

I would like everyone who sees that photo of me with Julia on my lap to know that the reason I have my head tilted back like that is because I was busy watching "Shrek" on the personal TV for her dental chair.

I like the pediatric dentist too.

I must admit I did wonder

I'd just assumed you can't stand dentists so much, you can't even look at them. Which is understandable after what you've been through recently.
