My First Experience

Some incidences you can never forget in life.One of the incidence I could relate to humor took me back to 3rd year in dental college.
In 3rd year,we got opportunity to work on patient,with our bestest of knowledge and skills.My first posting was in oral surgery where we supposed to extract [remove] the tooth and do minor surgeries.We were allotted patients according to our roll numbers .We were so excited but nervous too for performing our skills on patients.Finally the day arrived and it was my turn to extract the tooth of an old aged patient.the tooth was very mobile but the patient was very apprehensive but I was wearing a confident mask.The best part was he didn't knew either English or Hindi.So it was a kind of weird to interact when you really need it.Their were nurses to translate but because of number of patients in OPD couldn't help me.I was observing his expressions and he was observing mine too then I told him to take deep breath by demonstrating him .Then  I checked b.p and monitored vital sign.After initial examination I anesthetized him with local anaesthesia and asked the symptoms for numbness.Since he was my patient and this was the regimen we all were following but the patient was very impatient.When I applied the forcep on tooth and tried to knock out the tooth at the same time patient suddenly moved his head in the opposite direction and since the tooth was very mobile it came out without much effort.I managed to laugh without showing it to the patient as I was wearing mask and the patient was very happy with the painless and effortless extraction of his tooth.

Since it was the first experience with patient I can never forget and whenever I discuss it,it makes me laugh.

lucky you and lucky patient! Well, i remember a poem that I had read in our language classes during schooldays about how awful to sit in the dentist chair with so much of pain and yet to have the mouth open as wide as possible!

I have always thought the experience with dentist can be only horrible ,, never thought that could be funny on the dentist part :D

hihihii good one :D

Dr. Pratibha Singh November 7, 2010 at 12:11 AM  

@Anuradha-thanks for sharing your perspective and glad to see you on my blog.
Now dentistry is not painful and its just the fear from instruments and aerotor[drill types].
Their are funny sides too and don't panic dentists are also human being so just chill.
