Worst Dentist Ever

When I was five years-old I did a runner from the dentist. My grandfather depicted the epic escape in this illustration. Now, I’m writing a story inspired by it for my fourth My Life book of semi-autobiographical short stories.

Alongside the story, I’m going to include a list of the worst dentist trips in the world ever. I’ve been brainstorming with kids in schools and I would love you to add your horrendous dentist experiences, too.

Leave your idea below as a blog comment (Click ‘Comment’), include your first name and, if I include your idea, your name will be in My Life book 4 (out March 2016)!

Messy Brainstorm with Shailer Park SHS students for Worst Dentist Trip Ever list. Some great ideas.

    When I was 9, my dentist slapped me for getting hysterical about a shot.

      Cheaper than anaesthetic. Imagine a dentist doing that now?!

    I had a dentist when he was doing my feeling he wasn't focus he kept smacking my upper lip with his tiny little mirror and even stabbed my upper lip with a needle – maybe he was in Dreamland fighting zombies not realizing he was smacking a patient o.O

    Hey Emy

    That's great (not for you but for the book). I'll be sure to thank you in the acknowledgements for helping brainstorm ideas for this piece and hope to include your anecdote. :)) Hope you're well and happy. T.
