This bunch shows that a routine check-up can also be a great opportunity for some quality family time.

is this Dr. Bob in Oley Pa???!!
one question: Why?
I love the boy’s look like, “For REAL this is happening? Man I am glad that isn’t me!”
What in the sam hell?
I totally thought that girl had a Dixie Carter/Julia Sugarbaker tee-shirt on. That would have made this photo all the more awesomely bad. <3
What the hell???!!
Second from the left – Buzz from Home Alone?!
The girl in the chair isn’t even wearing the required dental bib. Now THAT’S awkward!
The Lady in the the shirt is non other then Miss Reba McIntyre
OMG! I got my cap put on my front tooth in my family kitchen, and got stitches taken out there as well!
The guy in the blue shirt totally looks like Buzz from Home Alone.
Eating candy in front of the dentist, IN the exam room? bold move missy.
The worst thing is that the crowd isn’t the patient’s family, it’s the dentist’s family come to see Dad at work!
I think the whole thing is staged – No dentist works standing up. Think grandma just wanted a picture of everyone and so they crowded in.
My dentist works standing up. It’s a little scary b/c the chair has to be raised so high and I’m worried it’s going to topple over some time.
This is just wild! I wonder how the dentist felt about this when the picture was taken. It’s party time all around him while he’s trying to work. woo-hoo!
What’s wrong? I take my entire family when I go in for my annual OB/Gyn appointment. Doesn’t everyone?
Cameras in the dental exam room? These people must be relatives of the Duggars!
Just to give a better idea, (I’m the submitter and the one in the chair) the dentist is my uncle. Then there’s my brothers, my dad, and my cousin, plus a lady who I guess worked for my uncle. Grandma just thought this was a great time for a family picture!
And I bet Grandma’s hauled the photo out at every family gathering since. Has she shown it to your boyfriends?
LOL, I’m sure she would have, if she were still alive! Given the kerfuffle this has caused on Facebook today, I’m think the only one in the family who knew this picture existed!
I love the use of kerfuffle! That word isn’t used enough.
The question I still have is why does your father look unhappy? Hilarious picture, thanks for sharing! 🙂
i love how the picture captures you juuuust on the verge of white knuckling the chair!
Sarah, can you identify the redhead on the T-shirt the girl on the far left is wearing? Or brunette, maybe – but Jill wouldn’t wear a vest, I don’t think…
The way they’re all grinning I think they just found the family will, hidden lo these many years.
What makes this picture even funnier is the other kids holding the candy! Talk about show prep…!
ALL RIGHT! Whose picture is on the T-shirt on the girl on the left, Jill, Kelly or Sabrina?
I think it’s Reba!!! I noticed that right away!
I Think We’re Alone Now, Doesn’t Seem to Be Anyone Ah-round…….wait a minute!
The downside of getting a Group Rate
How freakin’ bizarre. The kid is petrified – the wild look in her eyes, the way she’s gripping the armrests. Like she needs the added stress of having everyone crowd into the room and watch!
When I was little my brothers and I would run around in the exam room while each of our family members got their teeth cleaned. Our hygienist was so nice, she would just chat with us and let us press the buttons. I didn’t realize how weird it was until now D:
Dentist: “Ok folks, this time when I say ‘rinse and spit’, I’m referring only to Cindy. Luckily I had an extra smock”
Don is King of the Caption!
hahaha, that’s hilarious!
She’s not in pain; she’s thinking “God, what happens when I have to got to the OB-GYN for the first time???”
Dad’s pissed off face is because he knows he has a proctologist exam in half an hour.
Best. Comment. Ever.
If my family ever took a pic of me in the dentist chair, it wouldn’t turn out like that.
I wonder if they all went with her when she got her eyeglasses………..
Mom’s first day with new camera. Pictures of EVERYTHING!!
Tonight, a very special episode of “Oral in the Family”….group therapy. Notice the scared kid in the red shirt and Magnum PI in the background.
Is that Buzz from Home Alone back there?
I think it is, they look exactly the same.
Dad sure looks happy to be paying for this dental bill. Are the other kids holding candy? Not fair!!
Ha ha! Love this picture. Honestly, my husband and I attend our kids appointments. I can relate and also feel a tad silly now. This isn’t normal? zlol
I attend with my two boys as well, but if Dad were still alive, one parent would stay in the waiting room with the other child. Also, quite frankly, aren’t teenage children allowed the privacy of their own visit to the dentist? Mine at least are still under 11.
I recently attended a tooth extraction with my host family and it was something like this. One of the dental assistants filmed the entire procedure on a camera phone.
Sweet Tiffany shirt!
Tiffany?? I thought it was Julia Sugerbaker from “Designing Women”
Looks like vintage Reba McEntire to me.
I thought it was the girl wearing the shirt.
serious dad in the back makes this picture 10x better!
Dad’s just pissed because he knows how much this visit is costing him.
This is one of the weirdest photos I’ve ever seen.
The worst thing is it looks like her hands are clenching the chair arms. Pain and family mix well.
She’s clearly not an AFPer – she is showing NO enthusiasm whatsoever for being first!
Dental flash mob??
thats pretty weird….. tho americans seem to have done ALOT of weird things over the last few decades if this site is anything to go by!!!!
i do like the angry guy in the backs handlebar mustache though!!
A family that drills together… staaayys together…
Family Fun Day Stop Number One!
Wow! At least you got to sit in the chair. Our (dentist) dad used to check our teeth at the dinner table.
look at her hands clenching onto the arm rests in anticipation!!!
Open wide, miss. Now this won’t hurt. Well it won’t hurt your family, anyway.
The girl is the only one not smiling
I don’t know – dad looks a bit grumpy in the back!
well he’s probably paying the bill!
…but what/who is the girls t-shirt, on the left??!!!?
Reba McEntire, country artist. This was definitely late 80’s-early 90’s.
stalker in the background…
lol, how could not know who Reba McEntire is?
