Last week Julius had his first dental appointment, and the dentist found some decay (despite Julius brushing regularly) and set up some appointments to get this fixed before it becomes painful.
I mentally prepared the little man, i.e. by showing him Steve Martin singing ‘I am a dentist’
The whole procedure took about 30 minutes and included some gas, some injection and then of course drilling.
Julius took that all like a trooper, there was no objection at all, no complaint. It might have helped that the dentist was very nice and spoke some English. And of course that in that special kids’ dental clinic, they have flatscreen TVs mounted on the ceiling, so kids can watch TV while being drilled on.
