Childhood Memories - My first visit to the dentist

Extracts from this document...


Coursework Creative writing Childhood Memories - My first visit to the dentist One of my earliest memories is going out with my mum to visit the dentist. It was half past two on a bright, cheery day in spring. Being only five years old, I was convinced by my mom to visit the dentist and check out my then milk teeth. Boy was I excited!
