Yes, I said it, going to Modern Family Dentistry with the whole family was fun! It’s been a few months since I interviewed Jen and Ari after they opened their new practice. It was time for my whole family to get their check up, cleaning and for me to get a cavity fixed (don’t judge me) and also feed my vanity with teeth bleaching to get my pearly whites into hollywood. When I called Jen, I asked her if I should make separate appointments for the familia but she said “Bring the whole gang”.
To be honest, the idea of all 3 of us going to the dentist at the same time made me nervous. Especially given the fact that Mia was not a big fan of getting her teeth checked/cleaned, like she wouldn’t even let us brush her teeth at home… I though it would be a disaster and result in THE meltdown of the year.
We got there at around 9am and Mia started playing with all the toys in the waiting room… I sighed in relief, we are off to a good start.
I was up first, I did my X-ray’s first while Mia and Hubby were hanging out. Jenn even took the time to explain what was going on in my mouth… she kept it simple and did not overwhelm me with information which my ADD brain really appreciated.
Mia was playing all over the office, Jen and Ari’s dental assistant and admin person were playing and entertaining and running after her while my hubby and I were getting the love and care our teeth needed. Since I knew Mia was in good hands, I was able to relax! Seriously, it was the first time in months I was able to just lay down and watch TV! They have TV’s attached to the ceiling, so I got to watch two Modern Family episodes!! When Jen was done with me, I literally said to her “Keep going, I want to watch another one!”
At a point Mia was sitting calmly in another room watching Elmo so we all thought it would be the perfect time for her to get her checkup. I was so nervous, everything was going so smoothly. Is she going to start freaking out?!
To my surprise, she was so good! she let them check her teeth, brush and even floss!! I was amazed!!! Since then, Mia has been brushing her teeth every night before going to bed with no issues whatsoever thanks to Ari and Jen.
Now on to my teeth whitening…. The whole process took around 30 minutes, I watched an episode and then voila! I was ready for my next photo shoot.
