I like my dentist.
He's really cool.
He shows me how
to use his dental tools.

His irrigator sprays water
like my squirt gun.
It tickles my teeth
and massages my gums.

To suck up water
he uses an evacuator.
It's a little loud
like an old elevator.

It dries my teeth,
so he can see
if there is calculus
growing on me.

The fun part is
when he lets me play.
I use the irrigator
making it spray,
and at the same time
the evacuator
sucks water away.

Watching the water
dancing in air,
at my dentist's office,
I giggle being there.

     Do you like your dentist?  Or are you afraid to go to the doctor?  Does your doctor or dentist give you stickers or prizes for being a good patient?  Have you ever gotten to play with the tools?  Have you asked?  Some of the tools have fun names.  You might enjoy learning some of the names.  Can you write a poem for your health care provider today?


  1. That would have been a good one for the science book. Ily cloey

    1. Aw, Sweetie,
      Thank you. Truthfully, this poem is too long. It has too many lines. I'm going to have to figure out a way to shorten it.
      I appreciate the compliment. ILLY too.
