Porter and Alice both had dentist appointments this afternoon. For Porter, this was his third trip to see the dentist. For Alice it was her very first time. Alice’s time there was brief. She sat on my lap and the dentist counted her teeth. She has all but two. including one that’s just starting to come in. They tried to give Porter a teeth cleaning, but try as they might, he just wouldn’t go for the spinning toothbrush. When the put it on his finger to show how innocuous it was, he reacted rather vigorously. After a long session of negotiating, they managed to clean the top front three or four teeth before it was clear he wasn’t going to sit still for more than that. Oh, well. Overall, he did very well and best of all, when the dentist examined him he found no cavities!
Alice watches with great interest as Porter sits in the dentist’s chair.
Perhaps because of the recent nights wearing the 3-D glasses, but he wore the sunglasses without any serious complaint, which is unusual.
Having his teeth brushed the old-fashioned way: with a toothbrush.
The dentist looks at Porter’s teeth.
Then checks for cavities.
After the ordeal. Porter’s reward for no cavities and doing such a great job at the dentist: The Sodor Airport.
