Happening here under The Big Top:
The best dentist in Manteca...being THE best dentist because this guy understood Sensory Processing Dysfunction and oral defensiveness without any stressed-out mother explaining it to him and being able to actually put his hands into the mouth of the kid with SPD and oral issues without the kid throwing up or freaking out…gave the news that this kid apparently had been wanting to hear more than anything else in the world right now.
Well, except for perhaps saying you need a WiiU in your life. What dentist would say that? Even a kick-ass dentist like Dr. Lee?
No, he wouldn’t say something like that. But he would say, “Let me get you an orthodonture referral. Do you know Dr. Duong?”
Oh gawd! It’s happening! It’s really happening, for the 5th and final time. Someone hold me!
Even Dr. Duong is a little surprised and emotional having known Daniel since he was very small and still being fed by g-tube and of course because he will be her last patient from my Big Top. She’s going to miss us…in 2 or 3 three years…and our money. But what this woman can do with a kid who can scarcely handle anyone helping him with flossing as she worked on his teeth for more than 90 minutes…she’s amazing. It helps that she has watched this kid grow up, knows what he likes and can easily talk to him about the latest cool Lego sets or video games as she installs all kinds of hardware into his mouth.
Orange, red and blue brackets for the win because “they are really cool colors together, Mom” and bands. Extra bonus points being the first one in his class to get braces because, yes, it’s a cool thing when you are in 6th grade.
Metal mouth level, unlocked.
A WiiU gaming console would make his life complete.
