The kids had their dental check-up earlier this week.
Ever since Rachael was three and had her first dentist visit (which she was very scared about thanks to this book I read her which I thought would be helpful), I’ve been very impressed with how welcoming and fun their office is. There is a Lego table in the waiting room, a foam basketball and hoop in the back, and of course lots of stickers and a “prize box.”
Another thing they have is a Coloring Contest. Each month they have a coloring sheet, and when a child colors one, they hang it on the wall. At the end of the month, they select a winner and give them a $15 gift certificate to Target — pretty cool!
Rebecca won a year or two ago, and she did another nice job this time.

Nine year old Benjamin mostly played basketball, but he also made this drawing.

Thankfully for us — and our wallets — no one had any cavities, and no one shows any signs of needing braces.
