My husband wants to go to the dentist,

Because he’s in such pain!

I had a dozen abscesses last year;

And you don’t hear me complain!



But my husband insists on a dentist,

Old pliers aren’t good enough!

I’m the only one in my family,

Who can deal with a tooth that is tough!


But my husband must go to the dentist!

Why am I so upset?

My husband faints at the dentist,

And needs all the help he can get!


If my husband goes to the dentist,

There are so many things to go wrong!

He may not wake up for hours!

I don’t think the room’s booked that long!


When my husband goes to the dentist,

And can walk; he will still need my arm.

But with his mind gone and eyes closed while walking,

He may push me straight into harm.

My husband has to go to the dentist!

At best he will zombie walk!

How can he be so stubborn;

If he can’t think or talk?

My husband’s booked into the dentist.

My support worker forced me to call.

She knows he was impossible at the doctor’s.

At the dentist’s we’ve no chance at all!

My husband is going to the dentist!

There’s no way to stop the trip.

Even though I feel quite sickly,

And I may have broken a hip.


My husband needs to go to the dentist,

No matter how I yell!

My husband can’t wait to go to the dentist,

While I am praying for Hell!





My husband did go to the dentist.

It was not all that bad I must say;

She was a marvellous dentist,

I’d go back to them any day!

In dentist's office

My husband went to the dentist,

They didn’t pull out all his teeth.

He asked, but jaw screws are expensive,

And they wanted him able to eat beef.


My husband wants to return to the dentist,

They really were so nice!

They offered a triple appointment;

So we only have to go twice.

My husband enjoyed seeing the dentist;

Though he can’t remember at all!

At least I stopped nagging my husband,

He may have fainted, but we avoided a fall!

    1. I don’t really like the feeling of food and drink in my mouth, so I have a pretty good idea of at least one of the reasons I hate and fear dentists. In theory that is, I like the kids’ and Gavin’s dentists, as long as they don’t try to touch my mouth.
