Our last clinic of the day was with Maxwell's new dentist. Because of his heart issues and fragile medical status, Max has to have a "special" dentist.
The dental team was absolutely wonderful! Despite Max being exhausted from his five other clinic appointments, they got him to smile and cooperate with everything. They were extremely kind with both of us. Plus Max got a kick out of the dentist playing peek a boo with his mask! :)
A lot of people with CHARGE have significant dental issues. One issue is discoloration of the teeth based on heavy medications, medical complications, and lack of eating. Max's PCP and I thought we should get him a tooth cleaning done along with his surgery, but the dentist thinks we can hold off for awhile. This will definitely make the anesthesia team happy...they are getting worried too many people are wanting to check out Max while he is under.
Look at how incredibly adorable and cooperative this lil' patient is! :)
