Need health and wellness advice? Dr. Mehmet Oz has got you covered. Need someone to step in as a makeshift dentist and pull out your daughter's loose tooth? Oh, Dr. Oz can do that too.
Since the tooth fairy was busy, Dr. Oz stepped in.
“A doctor is always on call…even when it's Tooth Fairy's territory. I helped @hilariabaldwin's eldest daughter Carmen pull out a loose tooth. (@alecbaldwininsta would be in this video, but he's not one for the sight of blood.),” Dr. Oz wrote on Instagram along with a video of the tooth extraction. “I used a string to eject the tooth (it keeps the child from accidentally swallowing the tooth…and beats the old string and door trick). I'm curious about your best tactics for removing baby teeth. An apple? Weeks of wiggling? Just let them fall out? And dare I ask what the going rate is for the Tooth Fairy? (My guess is a few bucks.) Tell me in the comments!”
As she bit into a towel to stop the bleeding, everyone around her—including mom Hilaria—was cheering her on.
“Everybody clap for Carmen!,” someone said in the Instagram video. “Carmen you're so brave!”
Dr. Oz commented on her post, writing, “I've had plenty of practice with my own kids and grandkids! She was a champ!”
