I am sure he did better than I would. No matter how many times I've seen a dentist, I'll never be a pro. Did you know that red-heads feel dental pain more intensely than other folks? Dentists know that and are supposed to give us a little more novocaine. From the New York Times "A growing body of research shows that people with red hair need larger doses of anesthesia and often are resistant to local pain blockers like Novocaine. As a result, redheads tend to be particularly nervous about dental procedures and are twice as likely to avoid going to the dentist as people with other hair colors, according to new research published in The Journal of the American Dental Association." There you go!
