I'm sure most of you remember my trauma from Livi's first visit to the dentist in July 2009. Well we finally went back yesterday (it took FOREVER to get someone to recommend me a dentist! I asked a bunch of moms who had never taken their kids apparently.) and NO NEW CAVITIES. This time instead of crying with guilt I almost sobbed in relief. They couldn't do an X-Ray cause she freaked when we told her I'd have to stand right outside the door for a moment but the dentist did his thing and said she's good!

Oh happy day!

(I have further decay under 2 existing cavities, but that's fine!)

I am pleased. Like you would need more drama in your life. Until next checkup all is well.

Great!

(Stories of kids and dentists always freak me out a little. When I was five, my family moved, and in the course of finding a new dentist, we tried out one who was just horrible. I got scared and started squirming, and the dentist told his assistant to sit on my legs so that I'd stay still. My mom was sitting right there, and when she saw how panicked I was getting, she made the assistant get off me. We never went back there, but we saw a news story on TV a few years later that he had lost his license because some kids had gotten broken legs from being sat on.)

OMG! That's worse than my story and mine is bad! My mom worked at UConn Health Center (the Univ of Conn's hospital) and sent me to the forking dental students when I was 5 or 6. They once filled a cavity (using the metal crown and the rubber raincoat) and then the teacher said it wasn't good enough so they had to redo it! Take the whole thing out and put it in again! The 2nd time wasn't good enough either. I can't remember how many times they redid it. My dad took me (my parents were divorced, mom made the appointment) and I think we're both still pissed at her for it.

Yay for Livi (and her mama! You both deserve a high-five!)!

Also, that breaking-legs story is terrible! OMG.
