Military Dad Surprises Son In Dentist Chair

A 12-year-old boy was stunned when his 'new dentist’ removed his mask and turned out to be his military dad who had been deployed in Iraq for the past 10 months. Aidan Coffman initially had no idea that his father, Matthew, was beneath a surgical mask, posing as his dentist. But when the realization hit, Aidan immediately headed over to his father for an emotional hug, fighting back tears of joy. The moment took place on October 6, at Plaza Boulevard Dental, in Madison, Alabama. Matthew, 34, left for his deployment in Iraq on December 3, 2021 – his second as a staff sergeant with Tennessee Army National Guard – and because Aidan was too young to remember his father's first deployment, this one hit him hard.
