#1 son's first dentist appt went really well. We'd talked about it, read some books, done some practice runs sort of thing. Unfortunately things didn't go so well w/#2 son. I don't know what I was thinking or maybe wasn't. #2 son has had a difficult medical history w/lots of doctors visits, several surgeries and the like and has always been a stellar patient. I'm not sure if it was that, or the fact that I knew he'd watched his brother, or the fact that I was overwhelmed w/ 3 kids under 6 - but his visits have not gone as well. After 3 visits I don't know if he's ever really had his teeth cleaned. The dentist can look at his teeth if he sits in my lap and lays back into the dentist. But now I prepare him better and hopefully as he gets older things will get better - and I will not take the visit for granted w/my daughter!
