Amos FIRST dental check up !!

We passed by a free dental check up roadshow by the Health Promotion Board last week.

Zac has no problem visiting the dentist so long as we bring him to those oral surgeons that are patient & gentle to children.
I've got a bit of problem getting Amos to visit the dentist regularly.
However, I was totally surprised that Amos actually open his glorious 'smile' to the lady oral surgeon at the roadshow. As you can see from the photo. Amos is really nervous while waiting for his turn. Initially, I have to carry him while he is being checked. Later, I slowly put him down on the chair alone. YAY !! Amos made it for his first dental check up.
At the moment, not much issue for him except that I have to take note to brush his molar teeth properly.

These are the HAPPY BRUSHES recommended by the Heath Promotion Board. The 3 way brushing saves time especially when brushing little tots teeth. I find it really useful so bought home a dozen. It costs S$2.50 each & free 2 with every 10 pieces)

I immediately used it on the boys that night. I can see that the boys teeth are more thoroughly cleaned using it. Such a good deal !! :):)

my boys are brushing really well on their own since last year.... but then if there is a better brush or a recommended brush, it could make their brushing that much better!

Monica said...

Teaching Struggling Readers said...

Ahh I remember my first visit to the dentist. Everyone in my family had jokingly talked about how awful and scary the dentist was. I went and was scared. I bit the dentist and then when he was done, I ran out of the office and far away. I was so scared.

J@n!ce said...

Enchie : Thanks, will get it done :)

J@n!ce said...

Amel : Yes, its going all good now. I'm loving my JOB :):)

J@n!ce said...

Monica : Haha, ya loh. I'm so surprised that he can sit still there :):)

J@n!ce said...

TSR : I'm one such fellow too. I freaked out whenever I see those biege dental sheets coming into my class when I'm in my pri schools. I'm usually the one that the school dentist will want to see me. *sigh*

I cant imagine explaining to my boys now that the dentist is actually a "FUN" place. LOL :):)

Jean Chia aka Ms.Yummy~licious said...

yeah, jan! i dont think it's available here. I havent seen this around. :/

Jean Chia aka Ms.Yummy~licious said...

Happy WOnderful Wednesday to you, jan!! :)

EastCoastLife said...

It's never easy getting the kids to sit in the dental chair or barber's chair.

J@n!ce said...

Jean : Thanks, I'm heading for buffet dinner later. Feeling hungry already .... ;) ~~~~

J@n!ce said...

ECL : Precisely. Those are the 2 chairs that the tots have to overcome their fear ;p

Blur Ting said...

Oh, what a brave boy. You know I use baby toothbrush too cos it is soft and small. better for cleaning. My dentist says using soft toothbrush will prevent tooth erosion.

california teeth whitening said...
