We heard of Melody’s dentist through some moms from MOPS, and also read good things on Yelp. (Dr. Y did mention during our visit, that there are “mean” comments on there. haha)
Waiting Area – play structure for kids, massage chair for parents, and a flat screen with movie playing
Inside the playstructure
Blue Room – Apparently, fluoride comes in many different flavours such as chocolate, strawberry, raspberry…why don’t they have that for adults? =p
Melody got to hold Mr. Slurpy (she was not too fond of him)
Emily observes from afar
Game Room – you get a token for doing a good job
She wasn’t up to getting the x-rays done. I wouldn’t be either. I’m a gagger.
Above each of the seats is a flat screen that’s playing a movie.
Super ball prize!
Sparkly white! – ignore the roundness that is Melody’s closeup
Staff was very friendly. Place is super clean. Hygienist and dentist were very gentle. Very clear in explanation of everything. Melody’s teeth were definitely whiter than when she went in. She has done her own brushing for the past year, but it is recommended that parents follow up with another brushing afterwards until kids are about 8 years old. She flosses everyday, so there was no problems with that. She does have staining on her teeth (which I attribute to her like of blueberries), but the dentist is not too worried since they are not “soft”. She got a baggie with a toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss. They also gave us a checklist of what was done that day, as well as what we need to do. So, there you have it. Melody’s first visit to the dentist. She was nervous, but she is not opposed to going back in 6 months. =)
