Usually the patient is scared of the dentist, in this case the dentist was scared of the patient!
Recently a team of dentists, dental nurses and vets had to utilize their skillsets to help relieve a 75-stone polar bear of tooth aches and pains! The team discovered, once the bear was under anesthesia, that the source of his pain was a broken back molar and he immediately required a root canal treatment!
The root canal performed on the bear was the exact same procedure a human would experience, only the tooth was six time the normal size!
