This book is about a slightly fictionalized account of chronologically selected slices from my lengthy career as a dental specialist. Embellishments of strange happenings were unnecessary because human foibles ran rampant. However, most names and places have been altered so as not to embarrass the guilty, berserk, bizarre, and downright scurvy. The tales are what they are without color enhancement or pretrial publicity. The stories are retold in a series of vignettes which best captured my mood at the time. Who knew that dentistry could be so “funny?” Who knew, indeed? But is it ultimately a satisfying and rewarding profession as well? I will let YOU be the judge and answer that last question. In the meantime, sit back, relax and at least snicker at my “pain.” Hopefully you will find the tales within the following pages to be humorous and you will laugh along with me. Maybe at me, as well. And the jury is still out as to whether I would have done it all over again!
