DENTIST APPRENTICE!

We love our dentist! We have been going to her for the last 7/8 years! I used to tell my friends that it was like a break for me to go there because when my three little ones were babies, the girls that worked there would carry them for me! There were even times that they fed my kids lunch while I was getting my teeth cleaned! In fact, a couple of times they ran out of cookies so they ordered a pizza for my kids to take home! They are so good to us, and my kids know they are loved there! On top of that, we're able to fellowship with them because they are all Christians, and there is worship music playing in the background! Now if I have not given them enough props already, they also let my kids watch each other get their teeth cleaned, put on the gloves & masks, ask them ten million questions, AND let them be their apprentices. I'll let the following pictures speak for themselves!!

The little apprentice getting ready!! She's asking questions first! See the mirror in her left hand? (Oh, and those sunglasses are from the dentist to protect the eyes from the light..lol, they're not my own).

Can you see how she has the mirror in my mouth? Isn't she a good helper? She should get paid! LOL

Wow! What a great experience! Mine is a bit skiddish yet so...hopefully, it will be easier next time.

Sara said...

This is great. My kids love their dentist too. My 4 fight over who can get their teeth done first. My youngest was upset once because the other 3 were getting sealants on their teeth and he wasn't....so the dentist pretended to do his as well. It's all about making it not scary, and a fun place to go. Gotta love dentists like that.

Laura Lee said...

Oh fun! Our dentist is just like this!! Funny thing is that he's hyper-intellectual, giving the kids very technical answers to their questions, but they love it!!

Stephanie said...

How lucky you are to have such a wonderful dentist!!!!Seriously they are not all like that :)

pam said...

What a great little dentist.

I think the a lot of doctors could learn from the bedside manner of your dentist. It's wonderful to find someone you like going to and it's an extra plus when the kids can be happy at the dentist's office. Great post! Love the shades! LOL!

How fun to feel so grown up! My boys love our dentist too!

Erica said...

Wow, we are going to have to come visit for a checkup ;)! That is so cool that they go to such lengths! We have a nice dentist, but not that nice!

Stacy said...

Maybe you'll have a Dentist in the family!!!

Lisa said...

Now that is a good patient dentist, I had a little boy for x-rays last night that asked me a gazillion questions and then I had to copy a film for him to take with him and being we are digital he was happy to wait while I printed it. Kids need that, you never know what they will be when they get older.

Kristin said...

This is the coolest thing ever! I should also mention that I have never met anyone who liked going to the dentist, but I think if they were all like this we would enjoy them!

Kelly said...

Do we ever wonder what people think when we go somewhere and say, WAIT... and pull out our cameras!? Have a great weekend!!

Julie said...

That's really cool! I've never sought out doctors, dentists, etc. who were Christians. I honestly never thought about it until reading several blogs. What a great place!

Heidi said...

How cool is that.. and your dentist has cookies and pizza. Dude, mine has floss...

Melissa said...

I see a dental assistant somewhere in your daughter's future!

Once upon a time I was a dental assistant and LOVED it! When the kids are older and in school, I might go back to it.

Laura said...

Oh my goodness! I need your dentist! How cool is that!?
