I took someone for a dental check-up. She was a little nervous. The receptionist explained that many people are nervous of the dentist.
No wonder … the shrill sound of that drill spinning near your mouth is enough to scare the toughest of characters.
You hear so many alarming stories about things going wrong, especially when patients are subjected to local or total anesthetic, it is no wonder dentists are feared by many.
You know … I was nearly killed by a dentist once.
I was driving up a narrow country lane and he raced towards me at speed on the wrong side of the road.
Now I avoid dentists whenever I can.
