The prompt I am writing about this week is "my worst dentist experience ever"!
I have been going to the same dentist since I was 5 years old. In the thirty six years that I have been his patient there was only one time when I thought he was a Demon in a lab coat.
Demon dentist first appeared the day I had to have all four of my wisdom teeth pulled. I was seventeen and and thought it would be a piece of cake having my teeth pulled. Oh silly naive girl!
The procedure started off fine. I was given some laughing gas to relax me before he started poking me with numerous shots of Novocaine. The shots were unpleasant but not horrendously so.
The first three teeth came out fairly easily. Dr. Dentist showed me my teeth, complete with roots, as they exited my mouth. How cool was I that I could marvel at my freshly removed bloody teeth?
Everything went down hill when he arrived at the finally wisdom tooth. You see, tooth number four was turned sideways and needed to be broken into pieces to be removed. This was when the gates of dental hell opened up and welcomed me in to it's ghastly grip.
Sparing you the gruesome details, there wasn't enough Novocaine in all of dental hell that would get me completely numb on the left side of my jaw.
Dr. Demon had to finish what he had started and I had to man up and let him do it. With tears rolling down my face, and nurses holding down my arms, he worked with the speed of a possessed demon dentist.
I left that office with a face so numb and swollen, I could barely talk. I vowed that someday I would get revenge on Demon Dentist.
Well, that was until he gave me a prescription for vicodin and three of my freshly pulled teeth in a little bag.
Cool! Drugs and teeth! I gave those three teeth to my weird science teacher (did I ever mention that I went to the High School that Cameron Crowe based his movie Fast Times at Ridgemont High on?).
Weird science teacher had a collection of human teeth. We all suspected that he also had a collection of dead bodies in his back yard........but that is another story for another time.
So there you have it folks!
