|In the dental hygienist's chair: that's me supporting C's head from behind|
We were disappointed that the clinic's dentist wasn't in, but at least C. now has a magnificently clean, white set of teeth. And, for what it's worth, the hygienist assured us that she didn't notice any cavities.
True, C. never smiles, other than in the midst of a seizure, and only eats mashed food. So it's fair to ask "Why bother?"
But it's nice to know that at least some part of her is stellar.
Come to think of it, so are several others:
- her long, thick locks which she wears in an enviable braid
- her svelte, shapely figure - so svelte it's almost 2-dimensional
- her high cheek bones and pretty facial features
- her keen hearing
By the way, this clinic is exclusively for patients with cognitive disabilities.
