In preparation we read Little Bill's Visit to the Dentist, which was quite helpful. He liked the part in the story when Little Bill helps a little girl who is scared by pretending to be a bear dentist. So we packed up Corduroy and headed out for Dr. Nelson's office. (Yes, I am giving him advertising. He is the greatest dentist we've ever had. With all of our moving we have seen quite a few.) At the office the dental assistants were fabulous, and as you can see by the photo to the right, Bubby was a fantastic patient. It was another no cavity visit, YIPPEE! I am hoping they have inherited their father's great teeth, so far so good.

Bubby's 1st Trip to the Dentist
Here he is with his trusty old bear, Corduroy. For some strange reason Bubby was terrified about going to the dentist. It was very odd, as we've only had great experiences. He has accompanied us to all of the big kiddos appointments, so it wasn't some big unknown. In fact, Princess and The General love going to the dentist. They get excited about the visit to the treasure chest, the new toothbrush with the cute little tube of toothpaste. . .and if it is a really good dentist, they even have FLOSS!
