The Gutache Toothache Clinic was unique in our town. Here you could have a colonoscophy and tooth pulled out all at the same time for a discounted price. Dr Reg Interya was an unusual practitioner in that he had degrees in gastroenterology and dentistry and thought why not run both practices simultaneously.
Though you did have to be careful to state clearly what your issue was. There were a few instances where patients weren’t clear in their intentions and found themselves having their bowel removed rather than an upper molar.
But his practice was very popular. It was an entertaining place to visit and was always booked out months in advance. You would see a range of people holding sick guts or sore mouths. Any person with both issues was always in a real dilemma.
The dr’s receptionist a girl with a bent sense of humour would always ask on arrival: Guts or Teeth?

“Tonight it’s a smile, not a sniffle,” she commented with a laugh in her voice. “Guts and teeth, indeed”
LOL…never thought you’d image would go down that pathway did you….lol
“Can’t say as I did,” she agreed. “But the townsfolk might like this new alternative, here too.”
Wow!! what an active imagination…I suppose it would be far better to come out of there toothless rather than the alternative 😉
Yes there is that point Oliana
Haha. This is hilarious Michael. Yes you would have to make your problem clear!
Thank you Mandi….glad you had a laugh
Hilarious! A really fun read! 🙂
Ahh thanks SW..have a great day..
Hahahaha! You made me laugh, Michael! “Guts or teeth?” I think I will pass! Hahahaha! Cute story!
Thanks Joy, hope you are doing well today.
I am, Michael. I hope you are doing well too. 🙂
Yes Joy, about to start my day…winter has set in…brrrrrr🌬
We are in the middle of summer here. I’m not looking forward to winter when it is time for it to come.
Michael, how cold does it get there? Can you tell me in Fahrenheit because I’m not familiar with Celcius.
Well at the moment is 45F and it can get down into the low 30’s. I live too close to the coast for there to ever be any snow or such. If we are unlucky we get a frost or two but its the wind blowing from the south, off Antarctica that makes it hard some days…
I would think the wind off of Antartica is very cold! Are those temperature daytime temperatures or nighttime temperatures?
Daytime it’s a bit colder at night
Stay warm Michael! Have a hot toddie! 🙂
