Dentist Day

No Cavities
Each year I visit my dentist. This was not always so, but I started going regularly about six years ago. Do you like visiting the dentist?

I am happy to report - I have NO CAVITIES! I never have! And those people who know me very well are surprised to hear this, as I really like sweets! I used to eat so many sweets in my college days, too. I have toned it down quite a bit since then, and now I like dark chocolate.

Tooth X-Ray
Every five years they like to take x-rays of your teeth. This is neat to see, but sometimes uncomfortable when you hold the frames used to help the x-ray aim on your teeth. It is neat to look at the x-rays of your teeth when the dentist shows them to you.

Tooth Fairy
When I was little the tooth fairy visited me. I often wondered where she was when I had all four wisdom teeth removed!

Gold Crown
Super! I get a gold crown today for doing so good at my dentist appointment today. They told me everything looks good! I told them I would celebrate by eating some sweets. They said that was okay, as long as I remembered to brush afterwards!


  1. so adorable!! i love sweets too, and luckily it hasn't done any damage.

  2. Thank you, Jean! We shall never have a cavity even though we eat soooo many sweets! Brusha-brusha!

  3. These are the cutest teeth I ever seen! Unfortunately, I was never visited by the Tooth Fairy... But when I was little there was a trend of putting our small teeth in earrings and I had one pair! Really weird, right? Anyway, your illustrations are lovely, as always!

  4. WOAH! I need to see these earrings cos the visual in my head is too weird! I used to dream every now and then that my teeth would fall out. It happened all the time in high school and college, but I do not dream it anymore. This is why I try and take care of my teeth. :) Happy brushing!
