I’m starting to get worried about son’s once beautiful teeth. I’ve recently noticed brown discolorations on them from all the coffee and smoking. No telling what else is going on with them.
The last time I managed to get him to the dentist for a good cleaning and fillings was 2+ years ago. Since then I have made him two appointments, both of which he didn’t show up for. Everything was set up for him, he left the house with check in hand saying he was going, but he just doesn’t show up for the appointments. Lied to me the first time - shortly after that supposed visit I received a reprimandish-type letter from the dentist saying he failed to show up, even though son said he did. The second time, he didn’t even bother lying – just told me point blank he didn’t go, end of story. It’s very perplexing to me.
Does anyone have any good suggestions as to how I can persuade him to actually go to these appointments?
