Nope, I'm not shooting dental ads - that's cartoonist Raina Telgemeier in the photo below. This situation is a direct play off of Raina's very enjoyable web comic, SMILE (A Dental Drama). Raina describes it as "the true story of how my mouth got messed up, and then fixed."
Also check out Raina's young adult series, The Babysitters Club, from Scholastic.
Thanks to my dentist of nearly 20 years, Dr. Jack Sherman for giving us the run of his office!
