Why I did not become a dentist
Why does this type of 6 year old patient come to the Dr?
I don't know anything about teeth.
I refuse to know anything about teeth.
I hate teeth.
Something to do with the fact that I was born with very malaligned ones and had to endure 5 years of braces, and the nickname, Bugs Bunny.
Normally I stay well away from teeth. But when mommy and daddy insist on feeding their son sweeties, and don't brush his teeth, and Junior starts to look like an extra from a horror movie...well, then I feel the need to step in and make a plan.
My treatment plan included:
1 X smack through the head for mommy, PRN.
2 X punch to the groin for daddy, PRN.
Referral to those people like my dad and my sister who really really adore teeth, namely the Dentists.
