    I was scheduled to have all three of my wisdom teeth extracted from this man.

    Um, three?

      Only Three

      Yes. I had the first one taken out on my last year in high school. I spent six hours on the dentist’s chair. Some family friend “suggested” to take it out for me. She maxed out on the morphine shots and spent hours literally jack-hammering my lower-right jaw. By the end of the ordeal, there was only a crescent moon shape left of that wisdom tooth. She sewed me up like a partially-gutted pig and sent me home. I bled all night. The next day, my father drove me a couple of hours to the best oral surgeon in the three counties. He extracted the remaining tooth in less than five minutes. I wasn’t charged (thankfully) for anything because the surgeon was doing a favor. In other words, he was covering that dentist’s sorry ass. If the dentist wasn’t a family “friend,” my parents, my relatives and I would slap a heavy malpractice suit on her by now. Needless to say, this little history implies that I went through my recent extraction with more trepidation than I led everyone to believe.
