Montreal dad enlists squirrels to help pull daughter’s loose tooth

John Marchesan | posted Monday, Jun 27th, 2016

When I was 12-years-old, my mother used some dental floss and a bathroom door to help me pull a stubborn tooth.

At the time, I thought that was the craziest thing ever attempted to pull a tooth.

That was until I saw what David Freiheit recently did to extract a tooth from the mouth of his six-year-old daughter.

As captured on YouTube, Freiheit took his daughter Mila to Montreal’s Westmount Park last Wednesday to see if he could coax a squirrel into playing dentist for a day.

Armed with dental floss, some granola and a box of tissues, Freiheit tied the floss to his daughter’s tooth while tying the other end to a piece of granola. He turned on the camera and the rest is nothing short of dental extraction history.

The video has had close to 130,000 views since being posted.

This is not the first time Freiheit has attempted a unique way to pull teeth. In August of 2015, he used a drone to perform a similar extraction on his daughter’s loose tooth.

Can’t wait to see what Freiheit has planned when his daughter has to have her wisdom teeth pulled!
