You’re about to have a serious operation (hysterectomy, cardiovascular surgery, joint replacement, etc.) and the day before you go into the hospital, you get a toothache. The surgeon has cleared you for the operation but the toothache makes everything else stop and you must go to a dentist immediately.
You don’t know any dentist (you haven’t seen one in years) and the medical doctors never inquired about your dental health so you’ve got a bit of a dilemma. Someone recommends the new dentist in town and you go – and you’re stunned.
