Eva hadn’t seen her old dentist in years. While visiting family she lost a filling and made an appointment.
Nothing and everything had changed since Eva was a kid. Doc and his nurse were old. She was with him over 30 years. Equipment and furnishings were ancient—the place, and Doc, were shabby-looking.
Doc didn’t keep up with the times. Patients left for dentists who did. Some said he was a drunk—that was why he neglected his practice. Others claimed he was the cheapest dentist around—maybe too cheap.
Eva’s memories of him gave her the resolve to sit in the chair.
