MIKE: Aron? What are you doing here? Do you have a dentist appointment too?
ARON: Hey Mike. Yeah. I'm here for a cleaning. What about you?
MIKE: It's my tooth. It's killing me. I'm waiting to see the dentist. She has to see me soon. She has to do something about my tooth. It really hurts.
ARON: Don't worry. I'm sure the dentist is going to be able to help you. You won't have to wait too much longer.
MIKE: You don't think she's going to tell me she has to pull my tooth, do you?.
ARON: I don't know. If she has to pull it, she will. But I'm sure she will try to save it if she can.
Well I guess I won't have to wait any longer to find out. She's ready to see me now.
ARON: So what happened?
MIKE: Well, first she said he'd have to check the tooth.
ARON: Then what happened? Did she have to pull it?
MIKE: No. She decided to fill it, not pull it. But she said I'd have to come back tomorrow. She has to take some x-rays, and she has to check my other teeth.
ARON: That sucks dude.
MIKE: I know. Well anyways, good luck with your cleaning.
ARON: Thanks Mike. I am not worried. My teeth are always perfect.
