Something to smile about!

It's a tiny plastic bag. A giveaway to patients on their way out, filled with the necessities:. toothbrush, floss, toothpaste.

Normally the bag itself is uneventful, forgetful, and downright discardable! It either has contrived taglines on it like "Keep smilin'!" or a giant-sized image of a toothbrush in a color scheme from the 80's. Gross!

But last week when I went to the dentist, here is the bag I got instead.....

Such a CUTE little illustration! What a happy tooth!

The purple popped against all that white. It's the first thing I noticed. A lovely shade of plum!

I'm definitely saving this bag. Currently it's being used to store my newly-bought origami paper.

Oh, and my dentist said my teeth look really nice--that I have excellent tooth anatomy!

Go shallow grooves!

I love his utility belt. Would come in so handy for those days you have an ear of corn for lunch.

Gonna give this idea to my Dentist next check-up which should be soon. Actually I work for a Dental Supply company here in the area where I live.

"Excellent tooth anatomy", that's a cause to smile for sure. "Plum" happy for you!

You never know when you will run across a great image! Glad your teeth are in good shape and will be looking for photos of origami art! Thanks for visiting my blog and great comments!

I'm not a big fan of dentists but my dentist is a really nice guy, so I don't mind too much visiting him!
The illustration is cute and it does make you want to smile...
Good to hear you are well and your teeth are in good order!

Take care.

Dean Grey said...


I think so too!









I just assumed all dentists gave freebies away to their patients!



Switch dentists!

Hee hee! Glad your teeth are healthy, and that you are smiling! Thankyou for all your feedback on my blog, Dean. I have been a poor blog buddie of late. I think of you often and wish you all the best during this tough time of transition! xoxo

Yay, goodie bags! Love them. I still wish the dentist would put a lollipop in the bags. But I guess that would not be in my best interest, considering.

Haha you're so cute

Dean Grey said...


xoxo back at ya!



A lollipop would indeed be counterproductive, Corey!


Deeper Daze!



Thanks to all of you for commenting!

Ha ha - love the tooth. I have so-so dental anatomy.

My uncle was a dentist. He had a red and black Porsche with "Tooth" as his personalized license plate.

LOL at "Tooth" license plate.
