Granny Smith insists that Applejack has to go to the dentist.

But she doesn't have to like it.

At all.

I got my first filling just recently. I'm twenty-eight. I'm weirdly proud of that. :rainbowlaugh:

I enjoyed this story. I really hate going to the dentist, though to be fair, none of them have ever tried to scam me. :rainbowwild:

How many times must we go to the dentist before we do not go to the dentist?
Aside from random asides I must say bravo you glorious space communist

It tasted like sadness and unrequited love, an insipid taste that still somehow offended.

:rainbowlaugh:
Brilliant!

My feelings towards the dentist is summed up in this story. :rainbowlaugh:

There are always the pliers if you dislike it that badly. :ajsmug:

5169945 No, not the pliers! :pinkiegasp:

doin’ things that they could do just as well all by their lonesome with a five-bit pair of pliers and a ten-bit bottle’a whiskey! After roughly an eternity and a half, Colgate said, “Your enamel is a little thin.”
“Sho’s mah ‘atience,” Applejack said, past Satan’s toothpick.
My god, that is hilarious.

And little did Big Mac know that another branch of the dentists existed in Appleloosa and was waiting for him.

No one escapes the dentist.

No one.

Am I the only one that didn't have something against the dentist

I had my first filling last month. And I'm 30. Hooray!

Ugh getting your teeth scraped is the WORST. I have really sensitive teeth, so it's extra painful.

Fucking hate the dentist.

Great story. I don't like the dentist that much either.

Heh, quite worth the read.

~Skeeter The Lurker

Read for the premise... upped for the author's note. :rainbowlaugh:

Agreed. Quite worth the read. You write Applejack even better than Derpy.
I'd say it's well worth a ten-bit bottle of whiskey :ajsmug:

5170842
Thanks.

Wait, I write Derpy well? Where?

In The Pinkie Parallel. :derpytongue2:
Didn't forget that story did ya? I sure didn't.
I'm tracking it. :rainbowwild:

That's what I was hoping.

Nah, I haven't forgotten about Parallel. In fact, I feel like I should refocus on it.

I think that I am a dental masochist. I actually like the dentist, and I don't floss.

Braces are great. :ajbemused: :pinkiesick::applecry:

This, is. I'm sorry, could you just give me a second?
:pinkiehappy::derpytongue2::twilightsheepish::twilightsmile::yay:
O.k. I think I'm good now...

Wait, how did someone NOT like this?:pinkiegasp:

Driveby downvote for the hell of it, I assume. Which disappoints me a little. I like to at least earn those downvotes.

At lest AJ didn't have to have anything drastic done. When I was 17, I had to have all my pre-molars removed before I could have braces fitted. They took them out two at a time. I sit down, first thing they tell me is they need to inject a local anaesthetic. I expected a small needle, what I got was something they use for draining bone marrow. My reaction can be summed up in the following.

This was a great read. I also enjoyed the author's note.

Or approach a Cutie Mark Crusader who had just been investigating the spare tube of laughing gas. Please don’t ask too many questions about that last comparison.

I'm sorry, I can't do that.

Now, WHAT‽ Where‽ Why‽ When‽ How‽

(This instrument is, in fact, called a dental explorer, or a sickle probe. But its true name can only be expressed in screams.)

That is hilarious.

Satan’s toothpick

So is this. I'm going to have to use this next time I visit the dentist.

This story was hilarious, and AJ's scrunchie face was the perfect topper on this comedy cake.

You write the name of the emoticon offset by colons.

e.g. :"ajbemused": without the quotation marks.

:ajbemused:

Ah...so she was the decoy.......well-played...

Man, I kinda like going to the dentist, but they way you got the hook-whatever exactly right gave me the jibblies.:twilightoops: Well done.

5171051 that's a whole lot of nope.

a five-bit pair of pliers and a ten-bit bottle’a whiskey!

It should be the other way around, right.
Right?

it was pressed against her tooth, the sharp point digging into it. It was like the sound of hooves on a chalkboard, a screeching assault on the senses, even though the only sound was the soft scratching of the devilstick against her teeth. Applejack’s ears flattened against her skull.

I'm exactly the same way.

It tasted like sadness and unrequited love

I died of laughter. Twice.

5520485 It's called sarcasm.

Just went to the dentist last week.

AJ should consider herself damn lucky she could choose bubble gum flavor fluoride. All I got was fluoride flavor fluoride. I had to swish it around for 2 whole minutes, too!

5606899 Me as well. I'm still going to the dentist because I'm still a teenager but I never have had a problem with going to the dentist's, and I've never had a cavity. Only problem with my teeth I've ever had is a chipped tooth I got when I flew off my bike into the asphalt of, uh, I don't know a fucking street! My dentist lets me take a toy home with me from his "Toy treasure chest". He's so funny, and nice. And my parents knew him as a kid, and so did my grandma so I guess you could say he's a family friend. Huh, I went out on a tangent here.
Anyways, Rock on.

Sounds like a shill sent by the Dentist High Council of Evil to lure us back to the dentist's office. I say thee nay!

I was always the weird kid in my.class because I WASN'T afraid of the dentist. Of course, there were a few who loudly boasted they weren't afraid, but I never saw the point of either the fear of the boasting. I knew I could stop the dentist at any time by saying "Ow!" And this might just be my low self-esteem talking, but I always felt I deserved any pain I felt, a light punishment for not taking proper care of my teeth.

It was a diabolical-looking implement, a metal rod the size of a pencil, with something that looked like a bent needle at the end. It shone in the deathless glare of the fluorescent lights.
(This instrument is, in fact, called a dental explorer, or a sickle probe. But its true name can only be expressed in screams.)

It touched again, except now it was pressed against her tooth, the sharp point digging into it. It was like the sound of hooves on a chalkboard, a screeching assault on the senses, even though the only sound was the soft scratching of the devilstick against her teeth. Applejack’s ears flattened against her skull.

You just perfectly described one of my least favorite dentist instruments.

Well that was kinda depressing. No lessons learned. No big realizations. Just Applejack being rude & Colgate being patient. Clever writing, but it didn't feel like it went anywhere to me.
