No pain, no gain.

I chose my dentist based on nationality. Nepal. Any dude from such a spiritual land has got to have a good attitude towards unnecessary pain and suffering. I suspect, he may just be a dentist though. Anyway, he and his assistant looked at me with disbelief and said, “You’re not in pain? You should be in extreme pain right now. Constantly.” I shrugged and explained I’d dosed myself before calling and making my appointment. “We have to take out this tooth right away. As soon as possible. Very important we get that tooth out right away…. how about next monday? Keep taking your pain killers.”

    The most ruthless dentist I’d ever heard of was chinese, which kind of makes sense too. When I used to go to Fort Langley as a kid they always showed the frontier dentist’s weapon of choice; gigantic iron pliers.

      i always loved that sketchy house on the way to jinglepot pub that had the black and white sign in the window that read: “charlie wong dental mechanic” (it may not have been “charlie wong” but something like that.) always wondered who the hell would respond to such a sign and what a dental mechanic actually is. meant to take a picture, think the sign is gone now.

    dentists don’t scare me as much as dentists dressed like clowns.

    while living in nepal, i made frequent visits to the doctors and i can honestly say that i’ve never met one single doctor there that caused me any discomfort. I’m sure you’ll do fine. y’see, this one doctor even cut the corners of a pack of pills for me, so that the sharp corners of the package wouldn’t cut my fingers. they pay attention to the most fine details.
