Painless Withers Dental Laboratory

Great name for a dentist! You could have visited Dr. Withers if you lived in Salt Lake City, Utah during the 1930s.

Painless is to dentistry as Sasquatch is to wildlife.

How many chairs do you suppose there were on the floor? Looks like a modern serial dentistry practice.

"Come on in! Five chairs, no waiting."

I think for my dental work I will go back to the local college where it's free with the ladies training. Plus I get to see and be rubbed with young pert boobies :cheese:

My dad was in the CCC when he was 18-19 years old and it was the first time he'd been to a dentist. He had perfect teeth upon entering but developed a cavity once there; never had much sugar until then -- not enough money for sweets very often. Anyhow, the dentist in the camp was a WWI vet who used a foot-pedal drill and, as he was already quite old, didn't generate much speed with the ol' foot-pedal and didn't have too steady a hand, slipping the drill off the target tooth onto the neighbors. Yikes!!!! Poor Dad!

As long as you get a good square hit with the rubber mallet they won't feel a thing.

I'd avoid Dr. Dull, a dentist near where I live.
