For our next meeting, I wore something a bit more presentable, and flossed my heart out.
That next meeting, we formed a strong bond, my dentist and me. Before fixing my teeth any further, he asked if I was all numbed up, acknowledging our friendship with a squeeze of my shoulder.
We work in situations where our knowledge and skills are in constant sharpening mode.
We think fast in order to come up with the best treatment plans for our patients.
Unlike in other healthcare professions, most dentists have fixed working hours.
There is a misnomer that doctors are serious creatures. Doctors throughout their career keep making great contacts. Even my novel Crooked Crusader: Morally Impaired has a dental student who falls in love with his junior in dental college. They make sure that their teeth are at their best appearance when they smile.
