The Dentist Appointment

dentist called house the other day.

He told me I needed teeth cleaned.

I set up an appointment to see him on Saturday, June l0th. 

When I got to dentist's office, I had to sit in the waiting room.

There were other people ahead of me.

They finally called name. 

I went into his room and sat down on a big blue chair.

They leaned it back.

A bright light was turned on.

It hurt eyes, so I closed them.

dentist asked me to open mouth.

I did. I thought mouth was very big, but he told me to open it even wider! 

Soon he began poking around to see if I had any cavities.

He flossed teeth and put fluoride around teeth too.

The fluoride tasted like bubble gum. 

I had to spit into a dish-like bowl.

It squirted out water.

dentist kept asking me questions.

I couldn't answer because there were weird tools in mouth!

When I tried answering back, he seemed to understand though. 

His helper came into the room.

She asked me to open mouth again.

I had to clamp down on something that felt like rubber.

She put a big camera-type machine right next to cheek.

She did this on the other side of face as well.

They took two pictures of teeth.

It was really cool. 

The dentist told me teeth were perfect!

I didn't have any problems.

I could go home. “See you next year,” he said.
