Giant Dental Instruments

While searching for the Big Blue Paper Clip, we were delighted to find these giant dental instruments directly next door. There is a convenient parking lot between both. Next to a dentist's office; it certainly got us in the mood to floss.

Dentist Barry Booth built both the 14-foot-tall paper clip and the 16-foot-long dental pick and mirror, which he calls "Piknmera."
