Physical violence won't work. I have always been in the habit of when I am comfortably seated I grabbing the dentist's nuts and looking him straight in the eye and saying "now we are not going to hurt one another are we?"
This isn't going to work with this one - no nuts.
Marina translated. It was easy. Also they have eyes they see what is going on. In my case pretty obvious. Don't worry you'll work it out. I'll get the exact name and address of the dentist. You will have no problems with Elena with you. It is going to take several trips same as me but I guess you will be going back and forth just like me and I am just going to set everything up in advance. She actually wants 3 weeks to do crowns but said she could probably speed it up in 2 weeks. I am thinking of getting impressions done here then sending them over there. First I have some other problems to take care of but watch this space. This is not going away.
