>> Rachel: Welcome back to Chompers: The Musical! Start brushing on the top of your mouth, and make tiny circles around each tooth and LISTEN for the bell (SFX BELL) that tell you when to switch to another part of your mouth.
>> 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 ...
*In the process of denting things* Oh - didn’t see you there.
Who are you? Where am I?
Listen, kid, I’m very busy putting Dents in things, so I can’t really help you.
Dents? Wait - are you a Dent-ist?
A? Dent-ist? Oh no. I’m THE Dent-ist.
I PUT DENTS IN THINGS THAT HAVE NEVER BEEN DENTED BEFORE.
I DON’T JUST PUT YOUR AVERAGE DENTS IN AVERAGE DOORS.
I DENT THINGS FOR THE WORLD TO SEE IN ALL OF THEIR GLORY
BUT FIRST LET ME TELL YOU MY ORIGIN STORY
I’M A DENTIST
BUT YOU WON’T FIND ME NEAR TEETH

I CAN DENT ANYTHING I CAN FIND
I KNOW HOW TO DENT THINGS WITH MY MIND

BUT I STARTED SMALL BY DENTING TINY TABLESPOONS
SOME KIDS IN SCHOOL WERE GOOD AT MATH OR SCIENCE OR HISTORY

I THINK I MIGHT BE DREAMING
THAT MIGHT BE TRUE
BUT BEFORE YOU WAKE UP
I WANT TO SAY TO YOU
IF I CAN DENT THINGS WITH MY MIND
I KNOW THAT YOU WILL FIND
THAT YOU CAN DO
ANYTHING YOU SET YOUR MIND TO
I’M A DENT-IST
‘CAUSE I FOLLOWED MY HEART
I LISTENED TO MYSELF AND HEARD
A SONG ‘BOUT TO START
YOU’RE BRAVE AND STRONG SO HEAR YOUR SONG
AND TRUST YOUR MIND
THERE’S NO MOUNTAIN THAT YOU CAN’T CLIMB
Now wake up. You’ve got this.
[Startling awake] Woah that was a wild dream!
>> Rachel: Well, Dani’s wide awake now! And so are you! You’re all done brushing, and now it’s time to …
