First time at the Dentist

2007 Senior School Speech Winner 2nd Position
First Time at the Dentist
Ngaio Tamiana Room 12

Do you remember your first visit to the dentist? When I first went to the dentist I was in a panic. The dentist told me to lie down on the seat. Then I had to put some glasses on. At first I was calm but when I saw the needle I started to panic. When I am afraid I always believe that I am not. I tried to be brave and strong. But I cried when the dentist put the needle into my mouth.
It was bleeding when she pulled the needle out so she put a cotton bud to stop the bleeding in my gums. It was scary. When I got off the dentist chair she showed me my tooth. It was kind of yucky and small. I saw a little bit of blood on my tooth. It looked strange to me. The dentist put my tooth in a plastic bag and wrapped it up in tissue. When I went back to class my teacher told me to show the children my tooth. I will never forget that first visit to the dentist but next time I will be prepared.
