• Short Summary

    Children queue up at the Dental Bus to have their toothache taken care of.

  • Description

    Titles read: "The Dental 'Bus! When your teeth are at death's door - this pulls 'em through!"

    United States of America.

    Several shots of a long line of children stretching along a street to the 'Dental Bus'. Most of them hold their jaws as if they have toothache. Inside the bus we see a dentist asking a little girl about her teeth. She says she brushes them every Saturday when she takes a bath, with her brother's toothbrush.

    Outside the bus a little boy with a bandage around his jaw cries and tells the dental assistant there that he has toothache. The man says they'll see what they can do for it. Inside the bus we see the dentist supposedly pulling a tooth from the boy's mouth. He holds it up, saying "There it is!". The boy laughs and says "Aw, it didn't hurt a bit!" - he has a front tooth missing.
