Happy Visit

Jacob had his very first trip to the dentist today. Dr. Sims and his office call it a "Happy Visit" and really focus on making it a very positive experience. Heather, our hygienist, told me that depending on how Jacob reacted, we may only ride up and down in the chair and that would be it. Well, Jacob was awesome! Heather showed him each of the tools that they use and then was able to look in his mouth. (We had practiced that this morning after brushing his teeth). She said his teeth looked great! Then Dr. Sims came in, made him a balloon out of a glove, looked at his teeth and we were on our way. Jacob was given a goody bag with a new toothbrush, toothpaste, and flossers in it. Then he got to visit the treasure box on the way out and found an awesome plane! All in all I would say we had a very positive and successful first trip to the dentist.
