Parker's New Grill & a Review of Scripps Pediatric Dentistry

Before you start reading this post, press play.

[Oh yea. Bump that sweet Nelly jam.] 

At Parker's 2 year dental check up, we found out he would need 2 crowns and a filling. Just going in for a cleaning is a traumatic experience for everyone involved, I could only imagine how terrible two crowns and a filling would be. But the work was necessary so we agreed to have him put under to keep things as pleasant as possible. Tuan and I were both very nervous about the procedure but everything went really well and now Parker's smile is fixed! His new grill looks great (see right pic below). In the left pic you can see how half his front right tooth and the one next to that was badly cavitated. 

[Had to rob a jewelry store to pay for his grill.]

We took Parker in at 6:00 AM for his 6:30 AM appointment. Parker played at the train table while we filled out paperwork. He was examined by the anesthesiologist, Dr. Johnson, and then was taken to a room in the back. Tuan and I enjoyed the massage chairs and some sweet pop jams in the lobby while we waited anxiously. By 7:30 AM he was all done albeit very groggy and hilariously out of it. He spent most of the day sleeping but was back to his normal self by dinner time.

I want to say thank you to the staff at Scripps Pediatric Dentistry for your professionalism. Special thanks to Dr. J and Dr. Johnson for taking good care of our little man. If you are looking for a pediatric dentist in San Diego, I highly recommend Dr. J. He always takes the time to explain everything thoroughly and has great advice.

Gossip: Per Dr. Johnson, Dr. J loves Ace of Base. Ha!
