Visit the Dentist is an episode of season 1 in The Berenstain Bears, which first aired on February 4, 2003. In this episode, Brother and Sister get loose teeth and think of ways of getting rid of them without Mama and Papa knowing.


When Sister gets her first loose tooth, Brother teases her that the dentist will extract it with a big yanking tool. After Sister watches Brother get a cavity filled, she discovers that her dentist is a very gentle fellow and he assures her that most baby teeth don’t need yanking. They fall out all on their own.
