Going to the dentist might be the most dreadful experience for most people. No one likes having to go through all that pain, and some people even try avoiding it altogether. Because of this, dentist offices try to create a friendly and calm environment.
They play soothing music, the staff is nice, but this office in Nashville has found an even better way of calming their patients down. And his name is PeeWee. PeeWee is a French Bulldog who accompanies his dad to work every day. Ever since he was a little puppy, he hated being alone.
So, his dad felt like his best option was to bring him to his office and let him sit behind the reception desk. Naturally, the patients started noticing soon. With his friendly demeanor and cute face, he won the hearts of everyone who stepped into the Smile On practice. The more anxious patients started asking if PeeWee could stay with them while they got their procedures done.
So now, PeeWee will sit with anyone who wants some cuddles to get through their appointments. But PeeWee isn’t just a great moral support dog but is also helping the Smile On TikTok account go viral. One of their recent videos has over 2.7 million views. People love PeeWee and they even say they would pay extra just to have him sit on their laps during appointments.
Others even say they would go out of their way and invent dental issues just to hang out with him. The best part for all patients is that PeeWee loves his job and there is no extra fee for his services. And people can come to hang out with him whenever. But PeeWee isn’t the only mascot at the office. His sister, Minnie, is the face of the office’s Nashville Humane Association Campaign. John Trembley, their dad and the dentist who owns Smile On, donates every month on behalf of Minnie.
