Scotty's pearly whites

I finally got Scotty in for his first trip to the dentist. I took him to a pediatric dentist and we had a great experience. They had a really fun waiting room that he loved and the staff were all so good with him. And he, of course, charmed them with his good manners and sweet face! The did x-rays and for the last one he kept gagging on the thing they had to put in his mouth. I was hoping he didn't throw up all over the girl! They had a flat bed thing for him to lay on for his cleaning and exam and he didn't like it. He was so scared that he was going to fall off. I had to force him to lay down to show him that he would be ok. It was making me laugh that he was scared, so I'm sure the hygienist was thinking I was weird! I think he saw the little part for his head and just didn't think it was big enough to hold him. But after that he did great. He didn't have any cavities and everything looked good in there. After the exam the dentist gave him some tokens that he got to use to get some prizes from these gumball-type machines and he thought that was pretty cool!

Getting his x-rays.
