Jacob had his first dentist appointment today. I now realize we should have been to the dentist before today, but you live and learn, right? Jacob did a great job. Whenever Jacob gets nervous he becomes very quiet. The hygienist would ask Jacob questions, but he wouldn't reply to almost all of them.
I took Jacob to the same dentist that Kelly and I see. He is amazing! I had trouble with one of my teeth and he was the only dentist that was really able to fix it. We drive 40 minutes to see him, but it is worth the drive to see a good dentist. So, I trust him with our children's teeth.
Yes, Jacob had two cavities. We didn't always do a great job of brushing his teeth, and we don't have fluoride in our water. We're doing better about brushing now. Hopefully these will be the only cavities he ever gets. Jacob was a real trooper in the dentist's chair. He sat there nicely with his mouth open and didn't complain. We were proud of him. --emily
