How to survive the “Random Birthday Party”
You're a good parent, you take the “kiddo” to yet another one of those “bouncy house” birthday party where you are forced into small talk with, well let’s face it, perfect strangers, drinking fruity juice from a box. So your little angel is invited to a birthday party (which is awesome) but you don't know the host parent(s), and your not comfortable leaving your child there alone for a few hours. So, off you go, to the bouncy house/random person's living room/petting zoo/trampoline park.

First Trip to the Dentist
Do you know when you should start taking your child to the dentist? Generally, pediatric dentists want to start seeing their young patient's mouths by the age of three. So yes, this means you may need to take your sweet little toddler, prone to throwing full-blown tantrums, to his or her first dentist appointment soon! If the thought of this ordeal makes you want to run and hide, then read on for some tips that will help you survive your toddler's first dental visit.

Get the Help of Your Dentist Most dentists can give you helpful advice about how to prepare your child for their first appointment. After all, your dentist should have some prior experience with difficult patients! Ask your dentist what the office protocol is for treating children. Many dentists start out a child's first visit by counting the child’s teeth, and showing them the tools that they use for a cleaning and check-up. Also, most dentists have a special prize to give children when they have completed their check-ups. Before this first visit, you may want to bring your child to your routine cleaning appointment so he or she can become familiar with the atmosphere of a dentist office, and know that it is a safe place. Do not take your child to an appointment in which you are receiving oral care that involves needles and drills. Watching this will not aid in calming your child's fears! Finally, if you have a particularly cautious child, consider taking him or her to a dental provider that specializes in treating children, often known as a paediatric dentist. These offices are very kind to children and accept most dental insurance policies.
