This is Amy, she’s six and until last August she had never been to the dentist. After she joined LIVEfree’s School Dental Program, we took her to the dentist for her very first time. Amy was nervous and scared for her first check up, luckily, she had a LIVEfree employee and her bunny with her for support!
While she was there the dentist taught her how to clean her teeth correctly and also discovered she needed four fillings and two teeth pulled! Dental care is incredibly important for kids like Amy, in a crucial phase of development. Without regular dental check-ups, Amy’s teeth would have continued to decay, causing her pain and endangering her future oral care as an adult.
Since that courageous first visit, Amy loves going to the dentist, especially when she gets to go out for a milkshake afterwards! now Amy asks, 'Mummy, when do I get to go to the dentist next!'.
