Hippo Gets His Teeth Brushed, By 0:23 You’ll Be In Awe Of The Dentist’s Bravery.

Though most of us go to the dentist less than we'd like to admit, deep down we know that dental hygiene is of the utmost importance -- and that's true for both humans and animals alike.

In the video below, a patient hippo gets the equivalent of a full dental checkup: His teeth and gums are inspected, his throat examined, and his massive teeth are brushed with a giant toothbrush.

The whole thing looks like a scene from a cartoon, but it's definitely real and will definitely put a smile on your face. This hippo is way more chill than you are at the dentist, isn't he?
