    I remember that medieval gear very well, the drill was belt driven and so slow you could count the RPM, damn near rattled ya old fillings out. But, what about the stinking rubber face mask they clamped on ya to knock you out with gas. Jeez, I can still smell it puke

    Yes it was crude Paul and the surroundings were nothing like the pristine dentists practise's we see now, that said he was a good dentist and tried his best to put patients at ease still didn't make for a nice experience though

    BTDT, my teeth more or less used to come through with holes already in them. Of course this was blamed on "eating too much sugar" when it turns out to have been all the sodding starch.

    Who did that joke about "Instead of going up and down, my dentist's chair went back and forth. Then he said please get out of the filing cabinet"
