    Maybe he might do better with less insults. Or letting Tycho do it. Tycho's is use to being insulted.

    Everyone's terrified of the dentist. I haven't been to one in years because I aint letting those tooth demons poke around in my mouth. My brother had to get a root canal recently, and I had to drive him because he needed to pop some xanax in order to go. He was still so nervous he spoke in a British accent the entire drive there...

    I talked to my hygienist about this. People with good dental hygiene supposedly often enjoy going to the dentist. The cleanings don't really hurt them, and they get complimented instead of chastised. And while I don't like it, once I started flossing regularly and my gums got healthier, I found hate the trips a lot less.

    He just needs to go to a dentist that knows how to relieve some of that anxiety.

    Like these lovely ladies!

    I grew up with a terrible dentist who didn't believe in Novocaine, and then I moved 1000 miles, immediately broke a tooth and had to pick a dentist out of a phone book. The choice was bad, and she managed to destroy several of my teeth. I eventually found an awesome woman who is super-gentle, but best of all, *has the gas*. Makes all the difference in the world. I really can't stress enough to anyone reading this who has denti-anxiety; it may take a little work to find one, but somewhere out there is your gassy dental savior.

    I'm not afraid of the dentist because he tells me the same thing every time for years and I know exactly what's a head of me. My dentist is a grumpy old man who rarely speaks and sometimes just does things to my mouth without first informing me. The last time I was like "The hell are you doing?" And he said he was preparing to fill a cavity which he forgot to mention the previous time I went for a checkup so I thought I was just there for a regular clean. He's horrible. :(

    I like my dentist. I've been seeing him since I was a kid, and very rarely has my appointment been delayed. I would argue that he schedules too much time per patient (30 minutes each); he never spends that much time for a routine visit. The main reason my family like him, is that he doesn't push for excessive dental work. 25 to 30 years ago some other dentist told my dad he needed gum surgery. He went to my current dentist for a second opinion and was told everything was fine. Considering how much time has passed, I would say everything was fine.

    Can't comment on the newspost, but I just have to be a pedant and say that's not a falcon on Ryan's wrist, it's a Harris's hawk.

    Is it safe?

    "Is he-quite safe? I shall feel rather nervous about meeting a dentist"..."Safe?" said Mr Beaver ..."Who said anything about safe? 'Course he isn't safe. But he's good. He's the dentist, I tell you.”

    I guess I'm the only person who's never been afraid of the dentist or hated going to the dentist.

    The scariest moment in going to the dentist is getting the bill afterwards.

    The random button sent me to another dentist comic. What are the odds? :)

    I never really got the thing about being afraid of the dentist. But then, I've been having various orthodontic treatments seince I was like nine years old. It's just another doctor. The only scary part is the bill afterwards.
