‘Twas the Week Before Christmas…

Christmas‘Twas the week before Christmas, when all through the office
Dr. Griffin was stirring, the crowns & fillings were flawless;
The ops were all clean and tidied with care,
In hopes that more patients would soon be there!

Mandy and Barb were nestled all snug in their chairs,
While visions of cavities and calculus danced through the air;
And Kasi in the front office, in all her front office fame,
Had just finished filing an insurance claim,

When outside the office there arose such a clatter,
Dr. G sprang from his chair to see what was the matter.
Away to the window he flew like a flash,
Tore open the blinds, expecting a crash.

The parking lot was clear of any fallen snow,
Because we do live in Texas, you know,
When, what to Dr. G’s wondering eyes should appear,
But a huge red sleigh, and eight big reindeer,

The hefty old driver was not so lively and quick,
We knew in a moment something was wrong with St. Nick.
More rapid than eagles Dr. G’s team came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;

“Now, _Kasi! _now, _Mandy! _ now_ Barb!
Bring Santa quick and go get my garb!
To the front of the office, to the back operatory,
They brought Santa back and to get his story.

As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky;
So back to the chair Dr. G’s team they flew,
With their instruments ready, to search out a clue.

And then, in a twinkling, in came the Doc
With his mask and his gloves he eyed like a hawk
Using his mirror for careful inspection,
Dr. G detected the site of infection.

There on Santa’s molar was a spot that was shocking,
And black as the coal in a naughty kid’s stocking!
Dr. G said “this situation is of the utmost gravity,
Dear Ol’ St. Nick, you have a cavity.”

Santa’s face usually jolly was now pure dismay,
As he said to us all, “Christmas is only a few days away”
“Dr. G, can you fix it before Christmas night?
I have presents to deliver and a long, long flight”

Dr. G spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And filled up the cavity without a quirk.
Santa’s eye’s again twinkled, his smile was now bright,
He would make Christmas night, to all our delight!

With his pain now all gone and his treatment complete,
Dr. Griffin made sure to tell him to limit the sweets.
Santa gave him a nod, thanked us each and every one,
And made sure he left presents before he was done.

Then he sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,
_”Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night.”_
