Well, actually, it only lasted a day so I guess its not really a career. And, all right, I was more like an assistant to the dental assistant, but still.
This week I have been doing programming with the Standard 6 class:
But I took a break today to expand my vocational skills when a dental team from Alabama came to examine the kids. My job was to go through the attendance roster and bring the kids two at a time from the classroom to the kitchen, our makeshift dental office (minus the soft rock).
This job, which lasted all day, gave me the great fortune of being able to take before and after pictures of the kids.
Here are my favorite before pictures (some have never been to the dentist before):
And the proud after shots:
The scary waiting cooler:

The dental team (minus the actual dentist, who will restore the teeth tomorrow at a different location that has electricity)

Those pictures are great. The waiting cooler is a terrifying place. The after shots are priceless. And I’m taking it that you didn’t see the dentist then?
