CBC readers share tales from the dentist’s chair

Sink your teeth into 9 of our best stories

Last Updated: Oct. 18, 2012

Every smile has a story. When we asked readers to tell us about their memorable experiences with dentists, the results were heartfelt and funny, but also sad and even scary.

Readers told us why it may be dangerous to share a common name at the dentist's office, how getting teeth pulled can be like a Pink Floyd concert, and what it takes to get a dentist-dodging patient back in the chair after 25 years.

Read those stories, and more, below. To comment or share your own story, visit the CBC Community page.

For an investigative look at Canada's dentists and their practices, tune in to Marketplace this Friday at 8 p.m. on CBC TV (8:30 p.m. in Newfoundland and Labrador) for Money Where Your Mouth Is.
