I've had it for years, so yesterday, after cleaning, I asked the dentist to take a look at my aching wisdom tooth. He immediately said, "oo kena operate ni" and asked me to come again next week for an x-ray. I was like, haaaa?! That fast? No further discussion, no nothing? After that I didn't bother to ask more because I was so pissed off.
Since I was unconvinced with this dentist, abah took me to Klinik Pergigian Gelugor (at Gelugor Post Office) owned by Dr. Khazan Singh. He gave me his old, sweet smile when I told him about this one evil tooth and explained one by one, from the procedure until the method to ease the toothache. For good 15 minutes. I was more than satisfied. This is how a private practice is supposed to be. Not very profit-based like the first dentist.
