If dental students gain knowledge of anatomy by carving  wax replicas of each  tooth in the oral cavity, what do the artists at Esty store ‘uncannycreatures‘ gain by carving ears and mouths? Maybe a future in creating Hollywood prosthetic makeup?

il_570xN.911176016_boeiThe same online store also features plush animals with dentures that are a far cry from the educational plush featured in many pediatric dental offices. Rather than promoting good oral health care and a welcoming presence, the pink rabbit at left, created in the United Kingdom, might better be suited to scaring a thumbsucker straight. Brush or else, kids!

Let’s stick with smiling gators and friendly fish, at least until Halloween.
