A Flashback Friday Prompt with Teeth

What is the best time of day to go to the dentist?
(Tooth hurty!)

* * * * *

Q: What do you call a dentist who rides a motorcycle
and wears a black leather jacket?
A: Leader of the Plaque

* * * * *

Did you hear about the dentist who married the manicurist?
They fought tooth and nail

Hmmm, I wonder what we're flashing back to this week?!

What are your dental memories of childhood? Who pulled your baby teeth and how was it done - with a tissue, string, or other method? Was it a traumatic experience or no big deal? Did you have to have any teeth pulled by the dentist? Did the tooth fairy visit your house? If so, how much did you get for each tooth and how long did that last? How old were you at your first dental visit? Did you go regularly? Did you have any/many cavities as a child? Was dental hygiene taught in school? Was flossing a big deal when you were growing up? Did you have braces and, if so, for how long? Did you have to wear rubber bands, head/neck gear or other additional "accessories"? Did you need braces but your parents couldn't afford them? Have you had braces as an adult? Do you have any fond/funny//traumatic memories of old relatives or friends and their false teeth?

When I first thought of this for a prompt, I thought this might be a pretty weak topic, but the ideas just kept coming, and now I hope you may think you have to bite off more than you can chew!

Post your memories on your blog tomorrow and come back to link up!
