The kids had their first visit to the dentist since we've been in Sierra Vista.
I wasn't crazy about taking them to the dentist because in my mind NO DENTIST could ever live up to their dentist in Augusta. The pediatric dentist we've been going to from the beginning was absolutely great for kids! It was decorated with an Arctic Wonderland theme and had toys and video games. The hygienists did a great job and were all sweet and patient. The dentist would come to take a look in the kids' mouths once the hygienists finished the cleaning. He had a perfect set a teeth himself and a great smile. Very easy on the eyes too! LOL! Dr. Lee Baker's Pediatric dentistry certainly holds a place in our family's hearts!
So going to the dentist here wasn't something I was looking forward to. However, the experience was not all that bad. We went to Cochise Children's Dental Center. The waiting room is set up to entertain young children with table trains and wood puzzles on the walls. For the most part, my kids didn't take interest.
What I didn't like was that they did one kid at a time. The dentist was the one who did the cleaning and the assistants were just there to set up and hand him the instruments. That meant that each child was done one at a time and the visit took almost 2 hours, being that it was our first visit.
I guess I can't expect everyone to live up to the standards of our old dentist, but other than the time it took to do 3 kids, this was a great dentist. At least there were no tears and no cavities!
