Dentist: Good afternoon, madam. How are you doing?
Woman: Good afternoon. I have a toothache, and I’ve also had some gum pain recently.
Dentist: I’ll take a look. Open your mouth, please.
Woman: How does it look?
Dentist: Well, it looks you have a few cavities. I need to take an X-ray to check for decay between the teeth.
Woman: … and what about the gum pain?
Dentist: There’s some inflammation. It may be the result of the cavities. Now, follow me please.
Dentist: Well, I have some good news. You have two superficial cavities, and I don’t see any evidence of further decay. I’ll get these two teeth drilled, and the nurse will prepare the fillings in the meantime.
Woman: Will you get my teeth cleaned as well?
Dentist: Yes, the dental-hygienist will remove the plaque and get your teeth and gums clean and disease free.
Woman: Thank you.
Dentist: … and now take some water and rinse, please.
