Dentist visit

I finally took the kids to see Dr Priscilla of Pristine Dental yesterday.

It was a surprised that Brendan took it so calmly and sat with his mouth opened wide without a tinge of fear being shown. He had two patches done up in his baby molar and it's due to accumulation of food particles between two teeth on both side that caused the little cavities. It was a difficult place to brush and hubby and I only started flossing the kids teeth in recent months.

Eryn, on the other hand was an even bigger surprise when she threw a tantrum before going in to see the dentist, and didn't want to go on the chair, unlike her previous visit. All this was due to us asking her to stop seeing the root canalling magazine. sigh!

After seeing her kor-kor having his teeth done, she then quickly climbed up onto the chair and opened her mouth wide. While Dr Priscilla was cleaning her teeth, she started giggling non-stop. She had one big hole on her bottom right and a very tiny small one at the top right. The patching could have caused a small pressure on her tooth, I think, that she started crying after her bouts of giggles. She refused to open her mouth to get the second one done and used her hands to cover her mouth. Though the doctor says that that can be done at another time, I decided to get it done once and for all. It took a few minutes before we manage to persuade her to open up with much difficulty. double sigh!

The bill came up to RM260 for both kids for both molar patches each. A little pricey, but worth the trouble and the TLC shown by Dr Priscilla.

Scary, but just had to get it done. triple sigh!

Anggie, Dr Priscilla to both adults and children. It's not easy to get a good dentist, esp. for kids. In my older post on Eryn's pulpotomy treatment, most doctors I called recommended me to pull it out or didn't dare to touch on it, until I came across Dr Priscilla :-)
The dentist says that we can start sending kids at age 3 onwards.

wow, that's very expensive!
anyway, most important they got the proper treatment and their teeth can be saved.

Which Pristine Dental did you go to? Is it the Mid Valley branch? Since you've got good review on this dentist, now I know which dentist to bring my kids to.

Hi Shireen, I went to the Jalan Gasing branch. She was the only dentist that supported my decision last year not to pull out Eryn's tooth when other dentists I called suggested so..
