Dental Wishes

T.Puzzle’s toothbrush from first dentist visit

As I was signing Full Speed out of school and little T.Puzzle was running amok in the lobby, I had a serious moment of pause. Why on earth did I decide to have simultaneous dentist appointments for my boys? Had I tripped and hurt myself? Was my brain deficient of oxygen? As I left having outwardly shared my doubts, the receptionist calls out after me, “I’ll pray for you!” She wasn’t joking.

way to go Full Speed!

The pediatric dentist that I chose (and our insurance covers) is a good 45 minutes away. Again, why so far? Do I not have any good judgment left?

When we arrived they quickly took both boys back. I didn’t see them for over an hour. It. Was. Awesome. So worth the long drive.

I assumed that since I didn’t hear any screaming that they must have been fine. No one had cavities, Full Speed set a good example for little T.Puzzle (who was a first-timer) and the staff actually said my boys were ‘sweet’.

The only thing that was missing from this awe-inspiring experience was a martini bar in the waiting room. If they added that (which I suggested on their patient feedback survey), I would encourage monthly teeth checks for the boys. I want to do my part for the health of their teeth and the teeth of children everywhere.

  1. omg girl you are too funny! Good for Frick and Frack for clean teeth! Are they posing with their new toothbrushes?? Love it!

    1. I couldn’t believe they took BOTH of them back. I knew they would for Frack, but because it was Frick’s first time, I thought I would accompany them. So, it was a nice, unexpected break.
