Twas the night before the dentist and all thru the house,
Everyone was brushing and flossing their mouths.
The toothbrushes were hung in the cabinet with care,
In hopes the germs wouldn’t grow on them there.
The children were excited but finally went to beds,
While visions of candy and gum danced in their heads.
And Mamma had a toothache on the top in the back,
I had just settled my brain with a little nightcap.
When just before dawn we awakened to chatter,
Pancakes for breakfast, the kids mixed the batter.
We ate in a hurry and got ready in a flash,
Out the door we went, all in a mad dash.
I set the GPS with directions to go,
Adjusting my speed to the traffic flow.
Just as our appointment time drew near,
Our South Tampa Smiles’ office appeared.
We were welcomed and politely asked to take our pick
Of our seats in the waiting room, though our wait time was quick.
Soon after we seated, a staff member came,
With a warm and friendly smile, she called us by name.
Now Dexter, now Amber, now Spencer and Kristen,
We each took a stand as we quietly listened.
She guided us back and down through the halls,
To chairs that reclined and had little suction straws.
X-rays were taken of all of our teeth
To check all the areas between and beneath.
The cleaning was pleasant; it went very fast
Next was the exam, which the dentist did last.
He checked each tooth and the appointment was done
But those that needed treatment made another one.
Our checkup was complete and the experience was polite.
Regular dental visits keeps our smiles shining bright!
