I swear it was yesterday that my mom was making doctor and dentist appointments for me, and I swear I blinked, and I became a mom in charge of other humans! When did that happen? (Also, being an adult isn’t nearly as fun as it seems). So I was at work trying to think about the last time that I had gone to a dentist.. and I had NO idea - I decided it was probably time to go. And in an effort to kill two birds with one stone, I brought along a 3 year old. I‘ve joked before that going to the dentist without kids is considered a vacation at my house so I wont lie - I was nervous to bring her. However, as soon as we arrived at the dentist, she was EXCITED. We went to Metro Dental in Calgary and they have this awesome program called Pampered Parent Friday’s where they have a professional to watch your kids while you are at your appointment. How freaking amazing is that?
So while Ena was being transformed into the unicorn princess we all know and love, I had my teeth cleaned in peace. They even had an iPad available so I could check on her from time to time to make sure everything is okay. And after I was done, Ena had a quick checkup. The staff were absolutely amazing with her, she got a ride in the coolest rocket ship (dental chair) and watched some Paw Patrol while getting her teeth checked out (no cavities!).

As parents, we really try to make life as fun for our kids as possible - but I was definitely worried to bring a super active 3 year old to a dentist (whose attention span is MAYBE 10 minutes on a good day)... but our experience at Metro Dental was amazing. I mean, what kind of kid comes back from the dentist saying they had the best time ever? Now if only other business could follow by example (I'm looking at you doctors + postal office) - parents everywhere would be eternally grateful!
If you live in Calgary, I would highly suggest checking out Metro Dental and have a mini vacation at the doctors office.
