Smile! My new Night Before is here!

July 08, 2021

I always prided myself in not having a cavity. Whenever I'd go get my teeth cleaned, the dental assistants would call in the dentist and say, "Look! No cavities!" Then in my 40s I got my first cavity and I was devistated. I asked that the doctor not to use novacane and I sat in the chair while he drilled the tiny spot out and filled it with white filler, maring my perfect record. 

I realize not everyone is as lucky as I was to get through a good period of life without cavities. But I'm hoping my new book encourages little ones to start good dental hygiene early and think of going to the dentist as fun. I wish the dentist office I went to as a kid was as cool as the ones pediatric dentists have now.
