That's awful nice of U.K. and this stupid society/state that they want starving kids to have a good smile. One of them Mornon dentists to be got ahold of me back in the early 70's. I guess he gave me a shot right on top of a nerve cos from that point forward I was in shock as far as I was concerned. Didn't help at that time someone was near screaming his lungs out cos I think he had an abcess. I hope none of these kids gets Mr. Remember your visit.
