He was a little apprehensive when we first went back with the hygienist, but she went very slowly and let Ben look at and touch all the tools before she even touched him.
And when it was all over, Ben got a plastic fish and two stickers. All this plus the new toothbrush we had promised he would receive. He was thrilled!
By the time we returned to the waiting room to find our coats, he had forgotten the entire thing. He was really into this huge leopard painted on the wall. Hopefully, the pictures will remind him how easy this visit was, and it will be a breeze when we go back in six months.
