i heart faces ~ photojournalism

This week's photo challenge at i heart faces is photojournalism... using a photo to tell a story. I'm submitting this photo I took of Anna at the dentist a couple of months ago. Since Anna has autism, she is pretty freaked out about going to the dentist. I had the idea to bring Audrey, Anna's favorite baby doll, with us since she has two teeth sprouting in her chubby little face. Anna got to practice brushing Audrey's teeth in anticipation of her own cleaning and this was by far the best visit yet. She even let the hygienist put gloved fingers in her mouth this time!
