My first visit experience of a US dentist inflicted ‘shock and awe’ on their smiling white toothed faces. After inviting in their colleagues from next door I felt like an alien abductee as several faces peer into my gaping maw in shock and disbelief at what 36 years of British dentistry can do to a man’s teeth.
Like an Old Kent Road motor mechanic looking at my old banger I’d had towed in there the dentists then rubbed their chins and said the words: “we can fix it… but it’s gonna cost ya…”
I think I’m going to be good friends with my new dentist(s).
(Yes, the x-ray of the teeth above are mine).
