THE DENTIST IS IN

"What's next on the agenda, Carol," Dr. Cameron Fixx asked his nurse, "nothing tough I hope!?!" "No such luck," she said with a laugh, "we have a woman in the waiting room with what we think is and impacted wisdom tooth!!!" "Do we have a file on her already," the doctor asked!?! "Nope, brand new patient," Carol replied, "she just moved into town and says she hasn't seen a dentist in over ten years, and I think I can see why, she's scared to death!!!" "How old is she, anyway," the doctor asked, "maybe she's a prime candidate for our new treatment technique!?!" "She looks to be about forty five or so," Carol replied, "and I was thinking the same thing about the treatment!!!" "Well, let's not keep the lady waiting," Dr. Fixx said with a smile, "ask her in!!!"

"I'm Dr. Cameron Fixx, and you're Miss Winters, is that right!?!" "Uh, yes," she replied, "Kaye Winters, I just got into town last week, I'm working as the editor of the local newspaper!!!" "Well it's nice to have you as a member of our community," the doctor said while ushering Kaye into the examination chair, "now, let's have a look at that tooth!!!" After giving her teeth a thorough going over, Dr. Fixx ordered a series of x-rays to determine if Kaye Winters did indeed have an impacted tooth, but from the looks of things, that was exactly what she had!!!

Ten minutes later Carol handed Dr.Fixx the just developed pictures, and after only a minutes perusal he announced, "I'm afraid that we were right in the first place, you have a impacted wisdom tooth in lower right quadrant, so were going to have to go in and clean it out!!!" Dr. Fixx could see immediately that Kaye Winters was growing increasingly tense and agitated at the mere though of having oral surgery!!! He glanced over to Carol and carefully broached the subject by asking softly, "You're really nervous aren't you, Kaye!?!" "You don't know the half of it," she half moaned, "I'm so close to running out of here you wouldn't believe it!!!" Well let's not do that," Dr. Fixx said softly, "we've got a plan!!!"
