Brush, Rinse, Smile

 Reflection in a dentist's window
 The wording on the window suggests passerby to floss, brush, rice and smile. Hmmmm. Even the reflection is not sure it wants to smile.
Raising it's eyebrows?

The brickwork above each window appears to be raising it's eyebrows in surprise  at the suggestion of smiling in the dentists' office.

My apologies to all you dentists out there!I was just having fun, really I was.

That is so funny but a great reflection. Yes, nobody smiles going in to the dentist!

It's like a mantra they must use in dental school. :-)

Nice photos of reflections in a dentist's window.
Dentist is indispensable, but I only smile when I go away from dentist appointment...

Shammickite said...

Isn't it funny how we all hate going to the dentist, but are so thankful they are there when we need them?

William Kendall said...

Creative reflections! I think we all think of the dentist as Steve Martin in Little Shop of Horrors.

Not the type of place one likes to visit out of necessity!

Sandra said...

Your title brought a smile. Hope you didn't forget to floss. Great reflections.

Ginny said...

So cute! Yes indeed, it is raising it's eyebrows! You have a whimsical streak and I LOVE it!

RedPat said...

Nobody seems to like going to the dentist, EG! Nice building in the reflection.

Andrea Priebe said...

You make me smile ... this is clever and funny and if it were me in that reflection you would catch me turning and going the other way. Dentists ... you need them, but you don't have to love them:)

Hilary said...

This DID make me smile. I so often see faces in things and I'm glad I'm not alone. I was just working on a future post that covered some pareidolia with one photo. Thanks for this.

Very nice captures! I've had way too much time in a dentist chair this past month, though. :(

Lois said...

Nice reflections, but I would only be smiling after I left the dentist's office!

Kay said...

You're so right with the reflections in the second shot. Great shot!

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Such an old fashioned type of place for a dentist.

Nancy said...

You have a wonderful sense of humor...these are great.

Jack said...

You can't imagine how difficult it is to type these comments while flossing, brushing and rinsing.

Stephanie said...

I am enjoying seeing the older brick buildings where you live. Fabulous reflections.

'Tsuki said...

The reflection looks as shaken as me when I have to go to the dentist... I like this strong symbolism on your pics.

Lowell said...

Things have changed. As a kid, I hated the dentist's office - the pain was palpable! But over the years, dentists and their equipment have become gentler and kinder and I have even had a root canal with very little pain...amazing! Just think what it will be like 50 years from now. They probably just replace you mouth in about 15 minutes if you have a problem.

NatureFootstep said...

lol. very fun reflection :)

Norma Ruttan said...

a beautiful building reflected! Dentists have come a long, long way to eliminating fear since pain is managed so well now.

Su-sieee! Mac said...

hahaha. I love the humor of your photos.

I rarely smile at the dentist either. Interesting how the window shapes make the building seem to have a face. - Margy
