NEW JERSEY — Going to the dentist can be scary, especially for little kids.
When I was a kid, one of my first memories of the dentist was when I had to have a tooth pulled and I screamed and cried for about an hour before I let the dentist look at my teeth. I was very scared. My dentist was not happy with me.
Now, I don't scream or cry when I have to go to the dentist, but I also don't get excited about the experience, and my guess is most of you can relate. I don't think I've ever heard a kid or an adult tell me they were looking forward to their trip to the dentist. Sorry, dentists.
But what if our dentists were also magicians? That'd make the whole ordeal a bit more thrilling, right?
One little boy in New Jersey got to experience that, and it certainly seems like he's loving it. The video from Riverfront Pediatric Dentistry in New Jersey shows a little boy watching, in awe, as his dentist performs magic tricks. It's cute and delightful, and a whole lot of people seem to agree. The video has more than 17 million views on Facebook and plenty of comments from people wishing this was their dentist's office.
Enjoy the video, it will probably add an extra smile to your day.
