Soon after joining the mouth, Tony begins to hear frightening rumors about the dentist from other teeth. For example, is it true that dentists wear masks because like dragons they can breathe fire? It is only after Tony confronts the dentist himself does he learn that the rumors are untrue!”

Visiting the dentist doesn’t need to be scary and can often be rewarding. In practice, Dr. David aims to able to make each individual patient comfortable.
