[WHAT’S THAT SOUND THEME]


>>RACHEL: We’ll play a sound that a dentist’s tool makes, and you have to guess which it is. Here’s your first one: 


[METAL SCRAPING]


What was that? Here it is one more time: 


[METAL SCRAPING]


So what’s that sound? Shout it out.


[MUSIC BEGINS]


>>KID:  A DENTAL CURETTE! 


>>RACHEL: Switch to the other side of the top of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


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


A dental curette kinda looks like a hook. Dentists use it to clean plaque from your teeth. Even if you brush your teeth twice a day, and even if you floss, you miss some spots that are difficult to reach --- spots that only a dentist with a dental curette can reach!


Switch your brushing to the bottom of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


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


OK, here’s your next sound: 

[ELECTRIC SPINNING]


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

>>KID: A POLISHER!


>>RACHEL: Switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


>>RACHEL: but don’t brush too hard.


After your dentist cleans your teeth with a curette, they might use a polisher…


[ELECTRIC SPINNING]


>>RACHEL: to make your teeth look as white and shiny as baby teeth. 


[TADA!]


>>RACHEL: A polisher kinda looks like a tiny piece of rubber. And it makes this sound…


[ELECTRIC SPINNING]


because it’s electric and moves in circles on your teeth. Just like when you brush with your toothbrush! 


Speaking of which..


[MUSIC ENDS]
