Re: My 4 1/2 yr old had to get cavities filled.

Then afterwards she said, "mommy, I had fun at the dentist today!" Such a trooper.

You know, I think it's all in how we as parents handle it. If we get all nervous about the dentist, then the kiddos worry. Michelle, you and I must be awesome at handling the dentist! LOL
I absolutely agree with you.

I've never treated the dentist as something big and scary. And I have always explained to them what is going to happen, and I think that REALLY helps. It also helps to have a dentist who is great with kids.

God bless!
