Introduction

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! I wasn't so sure what a "dentist" was. I only knew that I was a truly 'brave and courageous' boy, according to my mum, to agree so readily to the trip. On the way to the dentist, my stomach grumbled suddenly. My mom said, "Son, shall we get some snack before we continue with our journey?"

Middle

With all my pent up curiosity, I asked my mom, "Mom, where are we?" Mom didn't reply but instead continued reading her magazine that she had been holding for the past few minutes. So I just sat beside my mom and fell asleep. A few minutes later, my mom woke me up and we went into a room. There was a stranger who was dressed in a white overcoat, and a stethoscope around his wrinkled neck. He was really ancient with a mop of snow white hair. At that precise moment, I freaked out. I was certain who this person was. I screamed and quickly ran out of the room.

Conclusion

I was so relieved by the fact that he wasn't doing anything until he took out an anesthetic syringe. I knew I was doomed. I burst out crying then as he gave me a pinch in the gum. No pain. I was so thrilled, a few minutes later he conjured up a pincer looking tool and extracted my rotten teeth. It didn't hurt! I was so glad. He applied some medicine and gave the rest of my teeth a clean bill of health. My mom thanked him. Before I left the room, the kind dentist conjured up a lollipop as a reward for my good behaviour. I was over the moon though my right side of my face was still numb. I fell asleep on the way home. I remember telling myself, 'I swear that I will never ever go to the dentist ever again." - Joseph Shin
