    I have a similar picture from 1995.
    That is soooo dr wafelbakker!!! Morgan hill!

  2. Linda says:

    He’s checking his pulse…..

  3. Roslyn says:

    the dentist looks like he’s nipping the boy. He’s probably thinking ‘wake up kid, crap why is he not waking up?’

  4. Smartazz says:

    Dr. Kivorkian before he got into medicine :)

  5. Nikkita says:

    …”Is this real life?…”

  6. haha says:

    This is my dentist…

    The original “DAVID AFTER DENTIST”!
    =]

  8. Carolina says:

    Those kids aren’t even related to the kid in the chair. They belong to the dental assistant, who brought them in to show them “see what happens when you don’t brush?”

  9. BioHzrd says:

    C’mere kids, little Johnny is passed out. Let’s get a photo, this could be useful later.

  10. Missy says:

    What’s that? Some sort of pressure point sleep hold? Never heard or seen that technique. I think they just wanted the baby to sit still for a family photo for once.

  11. MEB says:

    See, ya hold him by the scruff of the neck & he goes limp.

  12. cheryl says:

    This is what my family looks like when my 16 year old falls asleep on the couch. We all get big happy grins. HA HA!

  13. Jimchig says:

    This is a great photo!
    I would love to have been this kid. What a great conversation piece for the rest of your life.

    When I look back through the photo albums, it’s the oddball stuff like this that gets talked about, not the posed ‘Sears portrait studio’ stuff.

  14. Michelle says:

    a little sad to be the kid that everyone is happy is unconscious, but the comments on this one made me cry I laughed so hard :)

  15. Geke says:

    That man looks an incredible lot like my chemistry teacher, it’s a good looking family though and i’m sure this photo has some reason behind it haha.

  16. Elaine says:

    The picture made me laugh, but the comments made me laugh harder! You people are funny!

    One more reason to never fear the dentist.
    I don’t get the caption.

  18. Scott says:

    Little known to the rest of the crew, Dr. McCoy knew the Vulcan nerve pinch as well.

  19. Lance says:

    Doogie Howser, DDS

  20. iLOLd says:

    One more reason to be nice to your siblings…

  21. zukimac says:

    Is the Dentist holding the back of the child’s neck like a mother cat does to her kitten when she wants to immobilize it?

    • suz says:

      I think he is holding him up by his ear..or supporting his head so it doesn’t tip over…my dentist never gives me anything that makes me pass out

  22. awesome says:

    worst. stay-cation. ever.

  23. Chris says:

    He’s dead Jim!

  24. Marie says:

    One day this kid is gonna have a chance at payback…

  25. Marshall says:

    Little Bobby wouldn’t settle down for a family photo so Daddy resorted to a little Dental magic…we captured the the exact instant he hit Bobby with the Demerol injection.

  26. AmberNWichita says:

    aww poor little guy

  27. Margo says:

    I’ve seen some pretty strange photos in my time, but seriously, this has to be at the tip top of the list! Who, I mean seriously *who* thought this was a shot worth taking, let alone beamed up at the camera for this shot and actually followed through. I’d really like to know if the only way they could get this kid to cooperate and be in the family photo was to have him all drugged up and still in the dentist’s chair? Sheesh

  28. linda says:

    put some sunglasses on him and you’ll have a weekend at bernie’s.

  30. Marie says:

    It’s good to see everyone else having fun at this kid’s expense.

  31. alyssa says:

    O WOW
    THATS ALL I HAV TO SAY ON THAT ONE..???

  32. j-lu says:

    i like that this polaroid was tacked to someone’s caulk board at least six times… i wonder whose.

    • Kate says:

      Probably the dentist’s office. Our dentist growing up used to take pictures of the kids after their cleanings and post them in the lobby.

  33. Brian says:

    Is it safe?

  34. mark says:

    That is a super cute family. I guess the youngest just didn’t make the grade. You can always make more!

  35. LT says:

    Seems like an odd time/place for a family portrait, don’t you think?

  36. Cat says:

    Hmmm… is the kid dead? Love the thumb tack holes in the picture too!!!

  37. CarrieM says:

    It’s never a good sign when the dentist has to prop your head up after you’ve passed out.

  38. Kathy says:

    “In an effort to save money on nitrous oxide (I’ll admit I’m not sure that’s correct), local dentist resorts to Ninja-like pressure points to put patients out for exams.”

  39. ilovemykidsmore says:

    I love how the dentist is covertly holding the kids head up.

  40. Brooke says:

    The more I look at this the more I laugh my head off… why?? what was the reasoning behind taking this?? :oD Does every dentist do this when we’re asleep?? LOL

  41. Andrea says:

    the movie “weekend at bernie’s” comes to mind… Creepy.
