"I was supervising one night and a 3rd year dental student was seeing a patient. The patient was a young woman and in pain, you could tell just by looking at her that the pain was a lot. You could see the tension begin to ease as the student administered the anesthetic. I assisted the student as he extracted the broken tooth. The patient couldn’t stop saying how grateful she was. She must have thanked us 25 times on her way out the door. It was just so wonderful to help someone who was so thankful and to know we helped her out of pain."
