Look Ma I got a Loose Tooth

Moose has been so excited to loose some teeth. He is wiggling this one away. I am not sure why he is so excited. The tooth fairy does not give a ton of money for those teeth.

He starting seeing the dentist last year. Unfortunately, 4 cavities later he still loves his dentist. Dr. Carter is awesome. With all his dental work, he has never complained once about going to see him.

I have taken care of plenty of kids after a dental procedure. (If you didn't know, I am a RN in a recovery unit (after minor and major surgery) at the Children's hospital). Kids, months old to teenagers, all needing a hospital and anesthesia to get dental work done. So when my eldest had to have the fillings done at the dentist's office, I was blown away.

We see the same dentist that I went to as a kid. I love it there. We pay out of network just to see them. My middle child is still on the fence if he likes the dentist. I personally like going to the dentist. I am so relaxed after my visit. Which is surprising, with all the work that I have had done. Too many fillings and root canals to count.

Happy Birthday to Gram!!!!

Ugh, I hate going to the dentist. So it's a great thing that you little one doesn't mind going. :)

It so great he likes to go to the dentist. so far 3 of my 4 like going as well! It helps so much... I have one in braces and another one needing a consultation so I am dreading more dental bills!!! But teeth are important!!! :o)

You guys have a bunch of Holiday birthdays, Happy Birthday to Gram and Papa!
I hope Francesco will grow to love the dentist too, we had his teeth cleaned at 18 months and 2 years and he did not like it.

I'm not a dentist fan.

I also gag when my kids get a loose tooth. Haha!

And at one point I actually thought of going to nursing school... until I remembered that whole "I puke over EVERYTHING" thing.

Happy Birthday to Gram too! That is great that he likes the dentist. Ella has oly been once and she was a trooper. I wasnt sure what to expect, but it went very well. Better start saving Tooth Fairie!! :o)

That is great that he loves to go to the dentist after the work he's had done. I had 13 cavities done at once when I was little and that was not fun. I wasn't too happy to go to the dentist after that!
Happy birthday to Gram!

I STILL remember how it feels to wiggle a loose tooth with my tongue. And then I have those random dreams when my teeth are loose and falling out!?! Apparently, that's stress related.

I used to teach 1st grade, and it felt like a kid was losing a tooth daily. Tis the age!

You have the exact same job as my Mom!!! She's an RN in the pediatic day surgery unit. In Feb she's starting in the OR, tho.

I hate the dentist...and I'm yet to take my kid to one. Ooops.

Happy Birthday Gram! And oh, I love the dentist, too...it is such a feeling of accomplishment and peace to have your cleaning done!

I have a 5yo over here dying to have a loose tooth! "But all my friends have lost teeth, when will I....." it is clearly a status thing, not the money around here! :-)

My daughter is fine with going to the dentist, but my son is going to be another story.

I remember always being excited to lose a tooth when I was a kid.

I don't mind the dentist either...my DH is terrified of them! LOL! Men are hysterical! How cool that you've gone to the same dentist for so long!
