You Otter Brush and Floss!

Molly had her first dentist appointment today!  Her Mommy is scared spitless (so to speak) of going to the dentist, but I must have succeeded in not projecting that fear because she was pumped to be in (what I used to think was) the scariest chair on earth.  Admittedly, I would not be such a wimp if I was babied the way these kids are.  Truly, I was at a floss for words; the office was a kid's dream- complete with an aquarium, touch screen video games, a train that ran around the ceiling, and a magic mirror in which the tooth fairy appeared when you knocked!  I wouldn't lie about this- it's the honest tooth.  I tried to make an appointment for myself, but the receptionist (who bore an uncanny resemblance to a fairy godmother) seemed to think I was joking.  Honestly, I wanted to stick around and not brush out of there.

Leave it to Axe to have a comical, semi-dirty dentist commercial.  Even funnier because the dentist is such a babyface!  I left my last dentist because they brought in a guy who was my age to work on  my teeth.  I'm no spring chicken, but I prefer a much more seasoned man working on my mouth, thank you very much.  (Yes, I realize how very wrong that sounded...)

I'm dentist phobic too! But fortunately, I found a dentist who's wonderful with the kids and they actually love their dental visits!! LOL, the dentist is drop-dead handsome too!!
