All I want for xmas is my two front teeth....

(Picture is day of Pre-Op! Took it on my phone so it is not great quality... He fell asleep with Grandma pulling him in one of the hospitals wagons while Mommy was filling out paperwork)

So, Will has gotten through the dreaded "dental work" and we have all come out okay in the end. Dr. Michelle Harmon at the
The Athens Dentistry for Children did a wonderful job and did not have to pull any teeth!! She did some fillings and capped some teeth and although he looks a little different to Mommy, he looks great! I recommend her as a dentist and them as a practice to anyone who has a special needs child. Definitely worth the drive! I went to 2 other dentists before finding this practice. I wanted the best for my son and Dr. Harmon and her staff are the best!

*Note: If you have a child with who won't loose the bottle I suggest changing from juice to some kind of green tea with
Stevia or Xylotol. I prefer Stevia for Will because it helps prevent gum disease and some say reduces plaque. Xylotol is good but for some has a laxative effect and no thanks on that!! LOL.

So Grandma helped with
Pre-Op, Aunt Jodi got Taylor off the bus and we spent 2 days in Athens. On the day of the surgery we were a mess! Athens Regional Outpatient Center was fabulous! Everyone was so great with Will. It was not fun seeing him in recovery but once the narcotics kicked in and the IV was taken out he was set to go. The next couple of days he continued to get better (of course there was some crying) and I am happy to report that today we are pretty much off the Motrin and Tylenol.

  3. Hi, I found you from Casdok's new site. My son has high functioning autism, he had dental work back in March. He was sedated at Childrens Medical in Dallas, Tx.
