>> Rachel: Welcome back to Chompers: The Musical! Make sure to listen for the bells (SFX BELL) that tell you when to switch to another part of your mouth.
>> 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!
It’s funny you should ask about the dentist. I am a huge fan of dentistry.
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?!?
Why did Dani lose a tooth and I didn’t?
Can the big kid dentist cast spells like a wizard?
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?
Mr. Chipper, we already know what teeth are, but what does the dentist do for big kid teeth?
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.
Mr. Chipper... The dentist please?
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.
But Mr. Chipper - what does a big kid dentist do?
I SAT DOWN IN THE CHAIR. THERE WAS MAGIC IN THE AIR.
This is going nowhere.
And that’s how I got to my check up at the dentist.
But Mr. Chipper, we're not any closer to learning what a big kid dentist does!
So, at your check up, the dentist -
The big kid dentist...
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.
Yes! But we actually think the first dentist in the world lived in Ancient Egypt over 5,000 years ago.
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
What is a big kid dentist?!?
AT LONG LAST YOU'LL KNOW
WHAT A BIG KID DENTIST DOES, AND SO
I’LL TELL YOU NOW -
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 ....
