Two dog stories heard in our dental office today:
Patient number one was sitting at her home computer, got tired wearing her denture, took it out and laid it on the table. The dog jumped up and ran off with it. Time for a new denture!
Patient number two wrapped her tooth whitening trays in a napkin, left them on the kitchen table, up jumped the dog – and you know the rest. Fortunately she saved the stone models of her teeth so we were able to easily make new bleaching trays.
We always give our Long Island dental patients a box in which to store their dental appliances – please be sure to use it. Never wrap a dental appliance in a napkin!
