>> NARRATOR: Dani has lost a tooth and her mom has made her an appointment at the big kid dentist.  But she doesn’t really remember when she went to the dentist as a little kid … so she and her friends are determined to find out - what’s the story with the big kid dentist!  So they ask their teacher … Mr. Chipper!


>> MR. CHIPPER

It’s funny you should ask about the dentist. I am a huge fan of dentistry. 


>> PENNY

Mr. Chipper, is there a difference between the dentist and a dentist for big kid teeth? And does the dentist really turn into a turkey?!?


>> GERTIE

Why did Dani lose a tooth and I didn’t? 


>> DUTCH

Can the big kid dentist cast spells like a wizard? 


>> MR. CHIPPER

Class, settle down. I remember when I lost my first tooth. I had a lot of questions, too

FOR EXAMPLE, WHAT ARE TEETH MADE OF? 

WHY DO WE NEED TO KEEP THEM CLEAN? 


>> PENNY

Mr. Chipper, we already know what teeth are, but what does the dentist do for big kid teeth? 


>> MR. CHIPPER

Ah ah ah... It's important to know 

WHAT TEETH DO? HOW THEY CHEW UP YOUR FOOD? 

HOW YOU USE THEM TO SPEAK NICELY OR BE RUDE.


>> GERTIE

Mr. Chipper... The dentist please?


>> MR. CHIPPER

Oh right. After I lost some baby teeth, I went to the dentist for a check up. 

I HOPPED IN THE CAR WITH MY WHOLE FAMILY. 

WE GOT TO THE OFFICE AND MY BROTHER, STANLEY,

HE GRABBED MY HAND AND SAID, THE DENTIST WILL BE FUN.


>> DANI

But Mr. Chipper - what does a big kid dentist do? 


>> MR. CHIPPER

I SAT DOWN IN THE CHAIR. THERE WAS MAGIC IN THE AIR. 


>> DANI

This is going nowhere. 


>> MR. CHIPPER

And that’s how I got to my check up at the dentist. 


>> DUTCH

But Mr. Chipper, we're not any closer to learning what a big kid dentist does!   


>> MR. CHIPPER

So, at your check up, the dentist - 


>> FRIENDS/DANI

Yes?!?


>> MR. CHIPPER

The big kid dentist...


>> FRIENDS/DANI

YES?!?


>> MR. CHIPPER

Kids these days have no patience. 

DENTISTRY HAS BEEN AROUND FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS. 

IN ANCIENT GREECE THEY BRUSHED THEIR TEETH JUST LIKE YOU DO HERE. 


>> PENNY

Really?


>> MR. CHIPPER

Yes! But we actually think the first dentist in the world lived in Ancient Egypt over 5,000 years ago. 


>> MR. CHIPPER

KEEPING ALL YOUR TEETH CLEAN IS A SACRED ART

DENTISTS ALL AROUND THE WORLD TEACH KIDS TO START

BRUSHING, FLOSSING, RINSING, UNTIL BIG KID TEETH COME IN 


>> DUTCH

Finally! 


>> FRIENDS/DANI

What is a big kid dentist?!?


>> MR.CHIPPER

AT LONG LAST YOU'LL KNOW

WHAT A BIG KID DENTIST DOES, AND SO

I’LL TELL YOU NOW -


>> FRIENDS

OHHH THE DENTIST

WE WANT TO KNOW

(A school bell rings)

Oh dear, look at the time! I guess I'll have to tell you tomorrow. 


>> NARRATOR: Oh no! Mr. Chipper was no help at all! But join us tomorrow on Chompers when Dani’s mom comes to the rescue!  Now it’s time to ....
