When I was little, I hated brushing my teeth. I don’t know why. Maybe because I was too lazy or I just wanted to watch my favorite cartoon instead. Sneaking behind my mom’s back, I often pretended to brush my teeth and went straight to bed. Needless to say, my mouth was full of cavities by the time my next dental check-up came around. I was dragged to the dentist’s office for about a year. I’m sure my mom didn’t appreciate taking a screaming child who would do anything but go to the dentist. I realized then that keeping up with my oral hygiene is much better than visiting the most dreaded place on earth!
