I always loved going to the dentist as a kid. I’ve been going to the same guy for 30 years...only strayed once, and quickly found myself back in his chair. It’s a no frills, just drills, sort of office, but back in the day, that little cardboard treasure chest filled with prizes and the fact that he always put a polaroid shot up of all the kids, made me love his office.
So how much more is Lily going to love the memories of her new pediatric dentist’s office?
I love it just for all of it’s mommy comforts...an espresso bar, a fridge with chilled bottled waters, even a massage chair that will massage you from head to toe while you wait…if your 18 month old will let you sit there long enough.
The jungle themed office has a life size tree house with slide for the kiddos and a dark movie room that seats 10 or 12 people in theater styled seats.
All of these comforts are just in the waiting room. I only got to go back with her on her very first visit, and was shocked at all of the other kid comforts that awaited back where the real work takes place.
They asked her if she liked princesses or barbies, to which she replied that she was a princess. They used pink peppermint scented gloves as they “tickled” her teeth. She then was donned with princess sunglasses as they laid her back in the chair. A movie screen on the ceiling began playing Cinderella as she was examined.
Not only did she get to pick a new toothbrush and a prize, but had a chance to check out the video game room while I talked with the dentist.
Too bad we don’t need to go but every 6 months. We all had a blast.
I’m just wondering if her dentist is accepting new patients…you know, the adult variety?
