I especially like the "Dental Pedagogy" sections. And I agree that firing a guilt-inducing dentist is wise and 9to use a word I hate) empowering. Lucky for me, I have a dentist whose office manager puts on the Sinatra Pandora station when she sees me walk in. Then, with gas mask on, and a nice view of the park, I lean back and listen to Sinatra, Nat Cole, Bobby Darren (ne Roberto Cassario, who went to Bronx Science), Ella, Michael Buble, Jo Stafford, et al, feeling no pain.

Sounds like a wonderful place to spend an hour in a comfy chair.

Fascinating article.

nice story loved the last part where the doc was waiting for the assistant who was already in the room.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark
