Time to visit the dentist...woo hoo!
What's a dentist?
The dentist is a doctor who takes care of teeth and mouths. I've been visiting my dentist ever since I first popped up.
Why do we visit the dentist?
Well, teeth are VERY important we help people speak...
That's also true!
You don't get extra teeth. You have to take care of the ones you have so that they last! That's why it's so important to visit the dentist at least two times a year for your entire life.
What's going to the dentist like?
It was actually a lot of fun! The first time I went to "My Kid's Dentist" it was a short visit.
I got to meet my dentist.
She was super friendly! My mom and dad were with me while the dentist looked in my mouth.
She counted my teeth and checked to make sure my teeth were growing the correct way.
She also looked to see if I had any cavities.
I saw all kinds of interesting things in the dentist's office...things like the exam chair... it goes up and down so the dentist can see in your mouth.
There is a special light that's really bright so the dentist can see all your teeth...and there are special tools like a little mirror and an x-ray machine that takes pictures of the insides of your teeth;
there's even a little hose to spray water into your mouth.
If I ever have any questions about my teeth or how to take care of them I just ask my dentist.
Your dentist is a friendly doctor who wants you to have healthy, shining teeth.

ABOUT MY KID'S DENTIST:
Healthy smiles are a big deal!
Your children are special and that calls for exceptional care. Many children’s first experience with a dentist happens at an office focused on adult care. Dental care in this environment is often intimidating and frightening for kids. This first impression can create anxiety and avoidance of the dentist that will last a lifetime.
