We’ve been reading this book to Jboy for several weeks in preparation for today… his first ever dentist visit.
I’ve been pretty apprehensive about it, as there have been times when we haven’t taken as good of care of Jboy’s teeth as we should have. Turns out I was right. :( More on that in a second.
Jboy did so well! He didn’t seem scared at all during his cleaning & the hygienist even talked about how brave he was being. Everyone in the office was wonderful & made sure I knew I could take as many pictures as I wanted. I took full advantage of that:
So, back to the bad news. Jonathan has 11 cavities! Ack!!! I was so embarrassed & felt like such a bad Mommy. I know it’s not true, but in that moment, I felt about 1/2 an inch tall.
Four of the cavities are really bad and need some major attention, so we’ll become well acquainted with the staff over the next few months. They’ll also become well acquainted with our pocketbook. Holy heck, Batman! Even with insurance it’s going to be like $1800 out of pocket.
Needless to say, we’ve learned our lesson & will be super diligent from here on out.
