city visit to the dentist

Last week, we trekked into Philadelphia to visit our favorite dentist, Dr. George. (He's worth the trip: the girls walk right in to the exam rooms without me, no fuss.)

This was Anna's first time getting her teeth cleaned. Daniel Tiger and Anna's baby kept her company during the cleaning while some little round cereal o's kept Jesse company in the stroller in the corner.

When Anna was done, we went to the other examination room to meet up with Lydia and Heidi who were just finishing up with Danielle, the hygienist. So it was time for Dr. George to check out their teeth.

When we were done, the girls used their coins in their goodie bags (toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss) to pick a prize.

Afterwards, we walked a few blocks to our old stomping ground: Seger Playground. (I didn't expect the swings to be available, but we lucked out.)

The traffic getting into the city was terrible thanks to an earlier accident, but we survived the long car ride thanks in large part to the zooballoon's presence during our Kelly Drive detour. And we met up with a few friends at the playground. Though, maybe we actually do love our empty parks compared to the fuller city playgrounds . . . always pros and cons to every side, right?


  1. You have such adorable children! They even seem to be very brave when it comes to visiting the dentist. I'm glad that you find time to regularly bring them to the dentist for checkups and cleaning. Just continue doing that, and I'm sure your children will all have a sound oral health. Thanks for sharing that, Danielle! All the best to your lovely family!

  2. It looks like Anna was a bit scared based on the photo, but they are still very brave for continuing the check-up. I hope that Anna would still continue with the regular check-ups, as it’s important for children to always have their teeth check because they are the ones who are often prone to have cavities or tooth decay. Thanks for posting about Anna’s experience!

  3. That looks like a great waiting room. I have found that the problem with most dentists for children is that the waiting room looks like a waiting room and it makes children nervous. The smell also seems to give it away. There is a very distinct smell that I attach to both my childhood dentist's office and the doctor's office.
