Last week Jonathan got his first-ever tooth filling. He's had a few basic cleanings at a dental hygienist's office but this was his first filling. He had the dentist & dental assistant at his head, another staff member holding one hand, Rich holding the other, and me holding his feet!
Of course he totally played the "cute" card: he couldn't peekaboo with his hands so he squeezed his eyes tight shut & said "Where's Jonathan?" He did amazingly well & she got the procedure done in minutes.
What's amazing is that the dentist scooped out the cavity and filled it with no freezing or anything. Wow. Dentistry has come a long way since the days of screaming and pain. (The patients in those days were often traumatized as well.)
