Chomp is the friendly alligator mascot at the offices of the Hermitage Pediatric Dentist Dr. David Snodgrass DDS. Chomp and the Hermitage Pediatric Dentist have been friends for a long time. When visiting schools to teach kids about dental health, Hermitage Pediatric Dentist Dr. David Snodgrass DDS usually brings Chomp along to help teach and entertain the children. Recently, the Hermitage Pediatric Dentist interviewed Chomp. Hermitage Pediatric Dentist Dr. David Snodgrass DDS discovered that Chomp had a wealth of dental facts about the fantastic animal kingdom. The Hermitage Pediatric Dentist had the opportunity to ask Chomp questions from children that visit their offices.
Hermitage Pediatric Dentist Dr. David Snodgrass DDS: Good morning, Chomp! Thank you so much for taking the time to grant us this interview.
Chomp: Good morning, Dr. Snodgrass! It’s always great to talk to you.
Hermitage Pediatric Dentist Dr. David Snodgrass DDS: Thanks, Chomp, that’s sweet. I’ve got some questions for you today from kids at our local elementary schools.
Chomp: How exciting! Those kids can think up some of the most interesting questions.
Hermitage Pediatric Dentist Dr. David Snodgrass DDS: That’s the truth. Today’s questions are all about animals. I thought you’d be particularly qualified to answer some of these questions, being an animal yourself.
Chomp: Fire away, Dr. Snodgrass!
Hermitage Pediatric Dentist: First, which animal has the most teeth of them all?
Chomp: Hmm. Good question. The animal with the most teeth is the shark. A shark has multiple rows of teeth, and each row contains many hundreds of teeth.
Hermitage Pediatric Dentist Dr. David Snodgrass DDS: That’s a lot!
Chomp: But there’s more. Sharks technically have an infinite number of teeth, because when ever they lose a tooth, they can always grow it back no matter how old they get.
Hermitage Pediatric Dentist Dr. David Snodgrass DDS: Impressive. That’s very different from humans.
Chomp: Yes, humans have to take very good care of their adult teeth, because if they lose those, that’s it, human adult teeth never grow back.
Hermitage Pediatric Dentist Dr. David Snodgrass DDS: That is why brushing and flossing is so important. Our next question is about size. Which animal has the largest teeth of them all?
Chomp: Well, in pre-history the dinosaurs had the largest teeth. Being an alligator, I am a direct descendant of the ancient dinosaurs. But dinosaurs are extinct now. Today, the animal with the largest teeth is the elephant. A single elephant tooth can weigh as much as 6 pounds, sometimes more!
Hermitage Pediatric Dentist Dr. David Snodgrass DDS: Wow, that’s heavier than a jug of milk!
Chomp: Also, elephant teeth never stop growing. An elephant must keep chewing and eating to wear down its teeth so they do not grow too big for its own mouth.
Hermitage Pediatric Dentist Dr. David Snodgrass DDS: Fascinating facts, Chomp! Well, we’re out of time for now, but I just wanted to thank you for all the excellent information.
Chomp: Sure thing, Dr. Snodgrass. I can’t wait until our next interview!
