Dentist visits an elephant – level 1

This news is from a zoo in England. Keepers see that there is something wrong with one of the elephants. It is not eating well. They ask a dentist for help.

He makes the elephant go to sleep. He looks inside its mouth. One tooth is in the wrong position. It is not moving right. A part of it is breaking off. There is an infection around the tooth, too.

The dentist takes the tooth out. The elephant is better now.

Difficult words: keeper (a person who helps zoo animals).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
