Shawn Abigail, DDS

Well, not quite Doctor of Dental Surgery. Joel had a loose baby tooth that had been pushed out of place by an adult tooth. It was so loose that it would turn in the socket. And it was bugging Joel. And I couldn't pull it out with my fingers. So...

I got out the needle nosed pliers. I told Joel to tell me if it hurt at all, but it didn't. The tooth popped out with the slightest tug (remember, it could turn completely in the socket!). And Joel was so delighted to tell Bethany how I had pulled out his tooth.

I guess it's not all that significant an event, but I think Joel will have a happy/amused memory for years. As for me, I don't think I'll ever do it again. It grossed me out too much.
