Watching Kid Shows | Dente Complete Dentistry

Watching Kid Shows

My son, Finn, will regularly ask me to watch TV with him.

99% of the shows he picks are just unwatchable. They are shows like Sponge Bob Square Pants, Captain Underpants, or some kid YouTuber.

Typically, I’ll begin watching his show and at about the 5 minute mark, I am completely bored. I start looking at my phone and going through the internet.

I really really try to get through these child shows but I just can’t.

Two days ago I walked into the house and he wanted me to watch one of his shows on Nickelodeon.

He said, “Dad can you watch this show with me?” Reluctantly I responded, “Yes.”

We go to the couch and he will snuggle up against me. His head and body will lean against my chest as I wrap my right arm hugging him. My left hand is free with my cell phone, ready to bail me out from the boredom.

He grabbed the remote and turned to the channel to begin his show.

All of a sudden, I recognized the theme song, “I’ll Be There For You.” Then I began recognizing all of the characters…Joey, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Phoebe, and Ross.

I turned to him and said, “You like Friends? I love this show. ” “Yes it’s very funny.” he responded.

We were laughing through the entire show and it was such a great bonding experience with Finn and I.

I was expecting one experience and it turned out that I had a much better time than I expected.

This happens with many people at the dental office.

Many people will have a really bad dental experience, that will create a huge fear of the dentist.

This bad experience is now their new benchmark as to how a dental appointment should go.

They feel that in order to get through a dental appointment, they just need to grin and bear it.

Many people don’t know that there are other ways of controlling their anxiety during their dental appointment.

We are one of the few offices in the Chicago area that offers Anxiety Free Dentistry. We offer our Anxiety Free patients anxiety reducing pills that will help calm our patients during their appointment.

Most of these patients are able to get more work done at once, comfortably and in a relaxed state.

If you are anxious about going to the dentist and would like an Anxiety Free Dentistry Consultation, please call 773-292-1911 or visit us at to schedule your Anxiety Free Consultation.

Emilio “Central Perk” Couret

World-Class Chicago, IL, Dentist, Dr. Emilio Couret for Exceptional Dental Care
“I’ve been seeing Dr. Couret for my dental needs for years–before he began his own office even. From Day 1–he was amazing. After years with no dental insurance, I needed a lot of work done, and was insanely anxious. Dr. Couret is an expert at putting you at ease and making you feel at home. And he seems to take the time needed to ensure his staff does the same. My teeth look amazing, and you will not find a more caring, comforting team in Chicago. They take the time to not just check your teeth, but to check of any issues that might arise, including cancers that other doctors may overlook. My husband and I are in the middle of planning a long-distance move, and I can’t even begin to think about finding a new dentist. Especially one that can live up to the standard Dr. Couret and his team have set.”
