This is a question Dentists

My current dentist is called Mr Stiff.

Back when I was at university though, I had enormous pain in my jaw one morning - so bad I went as an emergency case to the uni dentist.

He took one look at the back of my mouth and said, "Ah, wisdom teeth. Impacted. They'll have to come out."

He then reached under the chair and came out with an enormous industrial (and entirely non-dental) pair of pliers, "I can do it now if you want..."

Thankfully, having always looked after my teeth and never drunk fizzy pop I have reached the grand old age of 22 and never had a thing done to my teeth. I still have three milk teeth because apparently some genetic defect meant I didn't grow the adult ones. One day (no-one seems to know when) they will just fall out and I'll have to have false ones so I can't be too smug really as I have it all to come.

I do however always go to the dentist every sixth months or so just to be on the safe side. He's not NHS (so its not cheap) but he is a nice man and my parents have used him for years. I ahve no reason not to trust him, however after my last visit I may have to rethink that...

I went in, sat down, he counted my teeth, said "You are aware you still have 3 milk one's aren't you?" I said "yes," he said "good, you're teeth are all fine then miss" and sent me on my merry way.

I went downstairs and the receptionist charged me................... 37.50!!!!!!!!!!!

I was in there 7, yes 7 MINUTES!!!!

So I would just like to make you all feel better by letting you know that not only have they put you all through immeasurable pain but they basically earn 321 an hour.

Ponder that a while.
