Well we attempted Carter's first dentist appointment. I sat in the chair with him in hopes it would make him more comfortable. He did not open his mouth the slightest bit, I literally had to pry it open. The dentist said that was fine we would slowly build up to his first cleaning, so every 6 months we will come in, walk around, possibly look at his teeth but mainly to just get him comfortable. We found an amazing dentist in Federal Way, Dr. John Hodges. He has 3 young children and his 8 year old son happens to have DS. We really enjoyed our visit, well maybe not Carter but he will learn to like the place one day.
