Brush! 



>> NARRATOR: Dani has had an exciting couple of days - she lost her tooth, her mom told her she’s going to the big kid dentist, and it’s all so EXCITING!  

 

In fact, it’s so exciting that it’s all Dani can think about as she’s lying in bed, drifting off to sleep.


But then something STRANGE happens ...


>> DENT-IST

*In the process of denting things* Oh - didn’t see you there.


>> DANI

Who are you? Where am I?


>> DENT-IST

Listen, kid, I’m very busy putting Dents in things, so I can’t really help you.


>> DANI

Dents? Wait - are you a Dent-ist? 


>> DENT-IST

A? Dent-ist? Oh no. I’m THE Dent-ist.

A SONG ‘BOUT TO START

AND TRUST YOUR MIND

THERE’S NO MOUNTAIN THAT YOU CAN’T CLIMB


Now wake up. You’ve got this.
