#SSAmazingAchievements 23/09/2015 The Dentist…

The saga of Sir and the dentist has been going on for.. well as long he has had teeth and has needed to visit a dentist basically.

He hates it. He is terrified and thus far no dentist has been able to give him a proper check up or even get a good look at his teeth.

Until Monday.

I picked him up from school and took him to the wonderful Special Access Centre and his fabulous dentist Paddy. Most of the kids from Sir’s school go here. Nothing phases them, nothing is too much trouble and they are really lovely people.

Sir wouldn’t sit in the dentist’s chair – he just wouldn’t sit down so he was told nicely but firmly by the dentist “You sit here or you sit there but you need to sit down”

Sir asked me for a cuddle and I took the opportunity to plonk him gently down on a chair. And I stayed there, holding on to him, not tightly, more like a cuddle, the dentist saw his chance and took it! It sounds like some sort of military operation I know, it wasn’t! everyone was very calm and very happy.

Sir opened his mouth, said “aaaaaah” about half a dozen times and Paddy got a decent look at his teeth. πŸ˜€ no problems to report and the whole thing took a very painless 10 minutes.

I was very relieved and very proud πŸ˜€

  1. Aww – well done Sir! I was always more bothered about optician than dentist as a child, but I know most people find dentist hard! Sounds like Sir has a lovely dentist. Actually just took Toddler a few days ago as she has always had funny stains on her teeth and doctors don’t know what they are. She was a bit dubious, but they kept giving her little prizes one at a time for allowing things to be done, and she was pretty good. & stains are nothing to worry about. #SSAmazingAchievements

    You have been hoping for this for a long long time. Hopefully now he will open his mouth for the dentist. So happy that this first good look showed no problems. Bless Sir…

    How exciting. It’ll be so good for him that this first time didn’t wind up hurting him. Good things in store. Good work you’ve done with him keeping his teeth so good.
