The last time I had my teeth cleaned, the dentist told me to bring Allie next time so she could get acquainted with the office and all the dental tools. She wasn't very excited about being there and had a look on her face that read "unsure." She was pretty happy to be in the playroom, but once we went back to the cleaning rooms, she voiced her opinion.
She took a ride on the chair, got a fun balloon (rubber glove with dental floss string), and watched "Mr. Thirsty" get a drink (you know...that suction thing that sucks all the water out of your mouth). Allie did show the hygienist how she brushes her teeth with the new pink and purple princess toothbrush she got...she did a very good job. The hygienist even looked at Allie's teeth.
Although Allie did a petty decent job at the dentist, I don't think she is quite ready for a regular check up and cleaning anytime soon.
