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.

Father & Sister? Family of medics?

Dr S. said...

Dad: Dentist
Sister Dentist
Brother: Lawyer/Marketing consultant/Playboy
Other Brother: Teenager
Mother: Advocate

So I guess half the family are in the health sciences?

Wow! Highly educated family! I am floored!

Actually being your brother seems to be very interesting. How does he feel like when he is a magazine?
