Dental School Graduation Party - It's toothtastic :)

Has it been awhile since you've visited the dentist? Not after these pictures. Check out the dental school graduation party I did this past weekend, and you will see enough teeth and toothbrushes to claim a visit to the dentist this year!

Mr. Fo's cousin, Nathanael, had a career way before he had a future with teeth. He was what you call a male model. Those closest to him called him "Fabio." Fabio posed with beach balls at a young age to model swimwear and other summer gear for the local catalogs. He was somewhat of a celebrity, if you will, and when I came into the family 10 years ago (10!!!), I had no clue that young Fabio would give up his head shots for a set of dental tools. But alas, sometimes child models CAN become dentists, and when they do, a tooth-themed party MUST occur. It's truly a fairy-tale, isn't it?

Aunt Caran, Nathanael's mom, approached me about planning her son's graduation party, and we had SO much fun! We even got tattoos at the end of it all to celebrate, but more on that later.

After months of planning, the party ended up being a whimsical and fun tooth-themed extravaganza....let's take a look!

Signs pointed to "Dr. Nate's office" so his patients wouldn't get lost.

Patients signed in at "Reception."

Then they got their "x-rays" (aka glow-sticks)

Stopped by the "Numbing Station" ...

before they got "filled"...

Guests treated themselves to the "sweet tooth" station at the end of the evening. (According to Dr. Nate, sugar "demineralizes" the tooth, hence the reference to demineralization)

The final stop was to grab the "goody bags" on the way out. The bags had your typical toothbrush and floss, and also included sugar free lollipops.

Unlike a visit to the dentist's office, there were lots of fun touches throughout the party.

The flower arrangements had toothbrush accents.


 See those rubber duckies? They were dental duckies found at Oriental Trading, complete with toothbrushes and lab coats...they have duckies in every profession you can imagine!

Napkins were tied with tooth necklaces (Note: All napkins tied by Mr. Fo. He demanded credit) ...

There were molar vases...

Clever signs...

And tooth food labels!

Fluoride was at work, even when wine drinking...

The sweet tooth demineralization station had cupcakes and cake galore.

You aren't going to believe this, but even the Tooth Fairy showed up! (If you're guessing this looks an awful lot like my niece Brookie, it's just a total coincidence.) Check out her special shirt!

 The tooth fairy is a very healthy eater - look at all that avocado!

After all the excitement, Aunt Caran and I had to get matching tattoos - what can we say, "We love to brush!"

Congratulations to Dr. Nathanael Shaw (aka Fabio)...I guess dreams can come true for a former beach ball model. 


  1. i love the cake/ labcoat idea. i've never seen anything like that before.

    something tells me i would visit the dentist much more often if my doc looked like dr. nate.

  2. Hilarious! Love all the signs. And of course, the tooth fairy!

  3. The dental motif is awesome! Ha ha, it's a nice theme and, from the looks of it, the tooth fairy is having a ton of fun. Well, big congratulations to the graduating dentists! Good luck to them!
