3 Year Dentist Appointment

Today was the boys' three year dentist appointment. This visit, they got a full cleaning. They did great! They sat back in the chair and watched the movie on the ceiling. A great life!

Joshua- Nearly fell asleep in the chair. His arms were hanging limply off the chair, it was pretty cute. Joshua has a cross-bite. Sorry kiddo, you got your teeth from mommy. He had some stains on his teeth, so we'll be doing a better job brushing. As for the cross-bite, he gets to follow in mommy's footsteps. Sorry bud. In middle school, they'll give him a retainer and every week we'll expand it in an effort to expand his jaw. Josh got everything from Dan, but got my teeth and height. Poor kid.

Thomas- Teeth are perfect.Welcome to daddy's world. They line up perfectly and had no stains.

Overall, the dentist was happy. We go back in 6 months for a cleaning and some x-rays. Unfortunately our new insurance is a tiered plan. This year, we are covered 70%, next year 80% and so on. So we'll be paying about $150 per visit next time and then hopefully 10% less every year. Ugh. Good thing we'll be at 100% by the time they actually need work done! :)
