Dentists

I really hate dentists...

...I suppose they are necessary....

...but I am such a coward, I really hate going to the dentist. I only go when I have severe toothache. I've never met a nice dentist. They always say, "Tell me if it hurts, and I'll stop." And then they ignore you. And why do they wait until you have a mouth full of metalware before striking up a conversation which requires you to respond??

...Unfortunately, I have to go again....

Ouch!

You have an advocate with St Apollonia Virgin, Martyr & Deaconess, burned to death c.249 at Alexandria, Egypt
Memorial 9 February

After her teeth were broken with pincers, she was given the choice of renouncing Christ or being burned alive; she lept onto the fire herself.
Patronage
Achterbos, Belgium; dentists; tooth disease; toothache

Representation

Ouch! Hope it feels better soon.
