 This series will change your perspective for your next dentist appointment and if you are a dentist, you won't be looking at "just another mouth".

As a child, I spent a lot of time in a Dentist waiting room reading Highlights magazine while waiting for my mother to finish her shift (she was a dental assistant at the time). She couldn't understand how people could voluntarily look into other people's mouths all day long.

Recently, while my children were at their dentist appointment, we found out that our dentist, who likes to hunt ducks in season, did not get a chance to participate in hunting that season. Since my boys and I engage in a lot of imaginative play, especially when they are nervous (like sitting in a Dentist chair), we jokingly asked if he could hunt for ducks in my sons' teeth. When he did not understand what we were talking about, I said I would draw a picture in time for our next regular checkup so that he could "see" what we were talking about.

By our next check up I had around 5 artworks with different dental themes. You can probably guess who purchased the original of "It's Always Duck Season".   Luckily, Limited Edition Giclee prints of the artwork are still available.

Ever wonder what your dentist is looking for when checking your mouth?

Ever wonder what the dentist might find?

If he/she's a hunter "It's Always Duck Season" as he/she hunts for "sugarbugs", cavities -- or ducks -- or something else in Eugenia Algaze Garcia's Mindful Art Dentist Series pencil drawings.
