Let’s travel back to the eighties…remember the song, Dancing on the Ceiling. It’s a fun song and just what I thought of when I left the dentist’s office after having my teeth cleaned. My hygienist is very smart. As you recline in the chair your eyes are focused on the ceiling. She has the ceiling covered with quotes and interesting facts. Reading on the ceiling is great diversion while someone is working on your teeth. “Love, not time, heals all wounds.” was a quote that I carried with me from the ceiling.
Two of my favorite books about teeth:
American children are familiar with putting their tooth under their pillow but there are many other tooth traditions that are different from ours. An interesting read for all ages. Throw Your Tooth on the Roof by Selby Beehler
A great book for learning all about those teeth inside of your mouth.
Open Wide: Tooth School Inside by Laurie Keller
