Stella's First Trip to the Dentist

Stella had her first trip to the dentist June 3, 2009. She went to see Dr. Jason Parker (www.docparker4kids.com) in Metairie. His office was bright and colorful. Stella enjoyed her time in the waiting room by trying out the different seating options.
The actual exam was not as exciting to Stella. She was fine with the hygienist flossing her teeth, and she really liked the water squirter, but she was not pumped up about the actual brushing. Back home, she inspected the contents of her goodie bag. What is this stuff?
Mom said there was a new toothbrush in here...
Here it is! I better try it out.

So, the diagnosis...NO CAVITIES! Hooray! Stella will be brushing and flossing her little heart out for the next six months until she goes back to see Dr. Parker again. Oh, and on a side note, the dentist apparently shaves his head. After he left the room Stella started pointing at her hair and asking me, "Hair? Hair?" I think she was confused that he did not have any.

I love Stella's bangs they are sooo cute. It looks like she really likes to get goody bags. I will have to remember that next time I get to come down.

Also did Stella get new shoes? If so they are very cute.

I love the photos of Stella "sittin' pretty" at the dentist. I was surprised she went to the dentist already...ours around here generally won't see kids till they are around 2 or older. Besides the fact that Audrey only has 4 1/2 teeth! ha!
