I do not like to visit a dentist. But one day I had a bad toothache. I could not bear the pain so I phoned my dentist, and made an appointment with him.
As I entered his waiting room, I saw many patients. They were all awaiting their turn to go in.
Most of them seemed to be in great pain. Some even had swollen cheeks. I sat on a chair and looked through some magazines as I waited to be called in.
Suddenly I heard a scream from the next room. I became very frightened. I wanted to get up and run back home. But everyone would have laughed at me if I did this. So I kept on sitting.
At last it was my turn to go in. The dentist was kind and gentle. He felt my tooth with his instrument.

He said that there was a cavity in it. It would have to be filled. Then he took a machine and drilled my tooth. It made unbearable noise. From time to time he made me gargle my mouth with water.
Finally, he filled my tooth with white cement. He then told me to come back after a week to have my tooth filled with silver. I had to pay him eighty rupees for his work.
On my way home I was happy. The pain had gone. I was thankful to the dentist for having taken away the pain.
Now let us take up another subject and think about it. Suppose we are asked to write on ‘My Likes and Dislikes’. The ideas that come to us may be:
People have different tastes-what some like may be disliked by others – my likes – flowers, birds, streams, animals, kind and pleasant people -what I dislike – cruelty, dishonesty, vanity, pride, boastfulness, meanness, miserliness – my likes and dislikes are normal and quite common.
The points for this essay will be people have different tastes – my likes – all beautiful sights and sounds -flowers, birds, green fields, streams, music, hobbies, kind and pleasant People – what I dislike – cruelty – dishonesty and all bad qualities – my likes and dislikes are normal – hope to get what 1 like and avoid what I dislike. With the help of these points we can go on to develop the essay.
My tooth hurt through the night. I had to take a painkiller to lessen the pain. Worst of all I did not get a wink of sleep the whole night through.
The next morning. I told my mother about my toothache. It was obvious I could not go to school. So instead she took me to the dentist. I was horrified, but I had no choice.
At nine o'clock we waited outside the dentist's office. The nurse came and opened the door. I was the first patient. She wrote down my particulars and told me to wait a moment. The dentist had not arrived yet. Meanwhile the tooth still ached like mad.
The burly dentist arrived and I was ushered to the dentist's chair. Normally I would run away from the frightening surgery with all its horrible drills and pliers, but I did not. I had to get the offending tooth out.
So I sat down on the reclining chair while the dentist kept saying some reassuring words. I relaxed somewhat. He asked me to open my mouth. I did so. He said that the tooth had to come out. I nodded dumbly in reply.
I felt a slight prick of pain when he gave me an injection, but that was nothing compared to the toothache. Soon, miraculously, all pain disappeared. The anaesthetic definitely worked very quickly. Then before I knew it, the dentist told me that I could go. I looked at him quizzedly and he told me he had already pull the tooth out. What wonder, I did not even feel it.
The dentist put a wad of cotton over the wound and he told me to keep my mouth shut for a while. I nodded, smiled and went out into the waiting room where my mother was waiting for me. The visit to the dentist was not too bad after all.
