First visit to the dentist
At a ripe old age of almost 6, Sean finally had his first ever dental health check. We all went to see my favourite dentist Dr Chua from Atria-Pan. It's notoriously hard to get an appointment with him, so I made sure to book this slot the last time I was back in Singapore. I've been seeing him, the funniest dentist I know, since 1996.
He's good at putting kids at ease, and a nervous Sean quickly relaxed after he was given a mirror to look at his teeth while the good doctor counted how many teeth he had; 20. Only then did Dr Chua give him a good clean-up and scaling. No cavities so far, thank goodness for that; ditto for Brian.
