[THEME SONG BEGINS]


>>RACHEL: Hey there, it’s time for Chompers. Your morning and night toothbrushing show. 


Start brushing on the top of your mouth, and make little circles with your brush around each tooth.


>>KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush!


[THEME SONG ENDS]


>>RACHEL: It’s Teeth week and tonight we're playing…


[WHATS THAT SOUND THEME]


>>RACHEL: We’ll play a sound from the dentist, and you have to guess what it is. 


Here’s your first one:


[STRONG ELECTRIC WHIRLING]


>>RACHEL: What was that? Here it is one more time: 


[STRONG ELECTRIC WHIRLING]


>>RACHEL: So what’s that sound? Shout it out.


[MUSIC BEGINS]


>>KID: A drill.


>>RACHEL: A Drill. 


Switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


>>RACHEL: and brush all the way to the back. 


Dentists’ drills might make a loud sound but they are TINY. Dentists sometimes use drills to make a hole in a tooth that has a cavity, to clean it out. Once the hole is cleaned out, dentists fill it with what we call a filling. And tada - your tooth is all fixed and ready to go!


Switch your brushing to the bottom of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


>>RACHEL: and brush your front teeth, too.


Here’s your next sound: 


[LAUGH]


>>RACHEL: What was that? Here it is one more time: 


[LAUGH]


>>RACHEL: So what’s that sound? Shout it out.


>>KID: A LAUGH!


>>RACHEL: A laugh. 


>>KID: Huh?


>>RACHEL: What does laughing have to do with being at the dentist?


Switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


>>RACHEL:  but don’t brush too hard. 


Dentists sometimes give their patients LAUGHING GAS to help them relax.


[SIGH]


>>RACHEL: You breathe it in and it makes you feel comfy and a little bit silly so that the dentist can do their work and help you walk away with a clean mouth!


[MUSIC ENDS]
