You got free toys from the dentist!?

I had a dentist who did this, he had a toy chest and every time you got a checkup we got to grab toy. It was great.

I think I always had good dental insurance because the most I’ve spent out of pocket on dental in one year was about 500 and I had several cavities, a whitening treatment, and a night guard ordered that year.

The joke is that Starbucks is everywhere, but the reality is it's only in decently sized cities, so anyone living in the other 85% of the country wouldn't have access without driving out of their way to get there.

u/NameIdeas Dec 08 '21

My son's dentist gives out tokens after the visit. Kids can choose from 8 different toy dispensers and get bouncy halls, little figures, etc.

When I grew up our dentist had a little pirate chest filled with toys and you got to pick.

u/Ryguy55 Dec 08 '21

I feel bad for everyone that didn't get toys. The dentist had little eagles you could balance on your finger with the beak, dinosaurs that would pop up in the air if you flicked their tails, scratch n sniff stickers, rubbery finger puppet monsters, all providing upwards of entire minutes of entertainment before you left them in the car forever because you didn't even give a shit by the time you got home.

u/[deleted] Dec 08 '21

I don’t remember getting free toys, but the lady who ran the dentistry had several Sega Genesis consoles, a Sega Saturn, and even a PlayStation. This was back in the early 2000s before my Puritanical mother would let us have video games.

I hated that dentist (and she literally ended up killing a kid on accident via anesthesia), but it was so cool as a 6-year-old to see all those retro (though new to me) consoles.

u/VirtualCardiologist6 Dec 08 '21

I'm 41 and still get toys after a cleaning.

I'm also have never had a cavity and I insist that I have every right to be a member of the "Cavity Free Rangers" and get my pic on the board.

Dentist tried to talk me out of it a few years back and I simply said, " ageism is a problem but I didn't expect it to be a problem here". The limit is 18 now but I'm grandfathered in.

Mine had a little chest and there were these cards for "a free goldfish". In hindsight, I don't think there was a pet store name on them or anything, but given what a goldfish costs, I'm sure most stores back then just gave them away b/c you needed to buy food and a bowl.

As a child, our dentist didn't believe in anaesthetic, he thought we should all just suck it up. As soon as I was old enough to not go, I stopped going. I didn't know it didn't have to be that painful until I was in my 30s and couldn't avoid it any longer.
