ID: 0275 Pre Intermediate
We’re as confused as you are, with the whole, “why do dentists ask in-depth questions while working on your teeth?” concept. But we can tell you this: you might want to be able to get yourself to the dentist and learn how to say “cavity” in Chinese. In this podcast, learn to communicate with your dentist in Mandarin Chinese about what ails ya. Don’t think you need this info? Ask Aric about getting a wisdom tooth pulled with no (as in *none whatsoever*) painkiller/numbing agent.
