NOT QUITE AS EXPENSIVE, BUT WORTH JUST AS MUCH!

Doodlebug had a dental appointment today and is fortunately still CAVITY-FREE!!!! That translates into ...No Crowns, No Fillings, No Maxing out of the Dental Insurance!!!!!!!!! So far, DB's teeth seem to be quite healthy. Desheng Darling actually takes much better care of her teeth than Doodlebug. She even helps Doodlebug brush hers sometimes! Poor DD, maybe her permanent teeth will be a little better than her baby teeth have been. Some of her problems may be due to heredity factors, lack of prenatal care, or just early dietary habits in the SWI. Who knows? Both girls spent approximately 2 years in China and I'm sure they didn't receive the same level of dental care that they would have received here.
Oh well, regardless of the cost, I still say it's all worth it because...
THERE'S NOTHING PRETTIER THAN THE SMILE OF A CHILD!

How exciting to experience a dental appointment without maxing out the insurance. I can't wait to experience that!!!! E's teeth must come from the same place as DD!

Glad D.B. doesn't have cavities. I jump in every once in while and give S.G. a good brushing. I worry that she doesn't get all the grime.

Yes, I remember when I got poison ivy last....and had to go to the doctor...and figure out how in the world I got it. LOL!!

Congradulations, DB, on having no cavities! What a great way to end a dental visit. Uncle Buck didn't have any cavities when he went to the dentist, either. Keep up the good brushing! Love, Aunt Muhl

Max has really good teeth as well. I was told that it was a sign Max's birthmother lived in the city vs the country. Max was also in the orphanage for 2 1/2 years. She has such a great smile!! They both do!
