A perfect set of pearly whites...
GQ had his first official dentist appointment this morning. He's been with me before watching the cleaning and six months ago they quickly looked at his teeth just to give him a feel for the chair, but today was an official cleaning. GQ sat in the chair so nicely and let Jennifer count his teeth and take a peak at them with her little mirror. She gave him the choice of bubble gum or grape toothpaste. He told her he can't have bubble gum because it has red dye 40 in it, but I explained it's just a flavoring and not actually bubble gum, then he was all for it. Luckily the bubble gum flavored toothpaste doesn't have red dye 40 in it, otherwise he might have been stuck with grape. YUCK! The thought of grape toothpaste doesn't sound very pleasant to me. GQ was good for the tooth polishing but got a little squirmy when she got to the molars and then brought out the suction to clean his mouth out. He didn't like that but he let Jennifer do it. After Jennifer was done Dr. Moran came in to took a look, she told GQ what a beautiful set of teeth he had and to keep up the good dental habits!
I was so proud of him! They gave GQ a really cool Mater toothbrush, toothpaste and floss along with his pick of a toy from the treasure chest!
