For those of us who are parents we all know how hard it is to see our little ones in any kind of pain or discomfort. Well it turns out that one of Mitten's baby teeth just wasn't going to come out and her adult tooth was pushing up under it causing her some pain, so much pain that she actually asked to go to the Dentist, so we went this morning.
When I say we, I mean all three of us, there was no chance this was going to be a little trip to the Dentist with Mum, nope Dad had to come out of work, it was a real real drama. We arrived at Dr Michael's Dental Clinic just before 11 am, filled in the appropriate paperwork and then we were introduced to the Dentist, Dr. Alexander. Then the real drama set in, tears, flailing legs, sobbing chest. Even my favourite Sean the Sheep video on the screen didn't seem to help! Eventually an injection was administered and the offending tooth removed. It was off to Choithrams for a treat, which turned out to be flowers so I am definitely not complaining about that.
Before we had even got home Mitten was bragging about how easy it was and that she would now like some braces... yes? Doubt it very much!
I would just like to thank all the team down at Dr Michael's Dental Clinic for managing to get us an appointment so quickly, and then for sorting Mitten out so professionally and of course patiently. You have a really nice clinic there, and I hear there is a new Paediatric Dentistry Unit opening later this year. I hope it all works out well (there are already Paediatric Dentists at Dr. Michael's though).
