I hated going to the dentist. I find the excursion to be heart-racing. My palms were sweaty and my head pulled tricks on me. I imagine the dentist to be the witch, wrinkled nose with warts all over wearing a large, black and pointy hat.
With that said, I grew up to have tooth decay and cavities. At 20, all I had left of my “real" teeth were the upper and lower incisors and some molars. I had no option but to return to the “witch" and have her make me a new pair of teeth.
The dentist was really great to me and after the entire trauma I caused her (crying and whimpering), she gave me the best teeth in the entire wide world. For the first time in my life, I saw the dentist for a fairy godmother. She's not anymore the witch I have always imagined her to be.
I met my wife in the pharmacy where I purchased my denture solution. We have 2 children and my boy is now in the age where the “fairy godmother" is a “witch". I understood he will lose all his teeth at 20, just like me and you know, it isn't for everybody.
