And lest you are fooled by the picture, Rachel would not sit by herself while her teeth were examined. I had to lie on the chair with her although I did not get cool shades to wear upside down!
Sam was an old pro and sat by himself. He didn't even need me to hold his hand, much. He got some cleaning done and was very cooperative. For the past while he has not wanted us to brush his "middle molar because it has a cavity." Well the dentist checked him out, and what do you know, Sam was right. He has a couple of cavities which the dentist is going to fix in the next few months.
Considering that Dave has yet to have his annual appointment, and my appointment ended up with me needing to get two cavities filled too, I think a lot of our extra money is going to go to the dentist. I know I'll be spending a lot of my free time there with all these appointments. I like having healthy teeth but man, is it expensive sometimes. Thankfully we have insurance which will (hopefully) cover a lot of it.
