Pulling Teeth

Thursday morning I was called by the Dental Bus coordinator, Joanne with an emergency situation.  The bus was in Grifton for the week and the driver had fallen the night before and had to have 6 staples in his head.  She needed someone to relieve him so him and his wife could go home.  I agreed to go even though I am not fully trained and would be working on my own.IMG_2334 Dr. Kawn from Charlotte was the day dentist. Super nice guy.IMG_2332 We had two night dentists and one assistant.

One of the night dentists did not have an assistant so he asked me to help him once.  I had to assist with with a tooth extraction.  I really didn’t like doing that and hope I don’t have to do it again, but of course I probably will if I am asked.

After this experience I am so thankful that I have always been able to visit my dentist regularly.IMG_2336The group coordinating the patients was from Charlotte.  They were a great group of people to work with.

Today (Friday) Billy went with me so he could drive the bus back to  Cary.
