my 5 yr old daughter had her first dentist appointment and believe it or not she was excellent. i figured she's cry and whine but no she was as good as gold.WHAT WERE YOUR EXPIERENCES WITH YOUR CHILD AND THE DENTIST??♥

I took my daughter to a pediatric dentist at 2 1/2. I thought she had a chipped tooth. They just looked over her teeth at that time, and he was great. The next time at 3 they cleaned her teeth and I was surprised at the lack of patience the hygenist had, and didn't leave me with a nice feeling. When I tried to make her next appt I called numerous times, left messages and couldn't get through. I then called my own dentist and they have been GREAT with her. I find it best to make morning appts as my daughter is more rested and managable. She now knows the drill (she's 5) and knows if she's good she gets to pick from the treasure box. :) My dentist even filled in a small indentation in one of her teeth with not too many issues.
