    I recently acquired dental insurance through my employer, after not having any for eight years. Two weeks ago, I went in for a cleaning, and luckily he only found one very small cavity and asked that I come back in two weeks to have it filled.

    I went back this afternoon. After sitting in the chair, I just happened to look up at the top of one of his cabinets and see the box for G1 Jetfire. I asked him about it, and he said it was his personal figure from his childhood, and he "keeps it in his office as a good luck charm". We chatted up Transformers for about 20 minutes, then I had the cavity filled and was sent on my way. Pretty cool to meet a fellow fan and collector in an unusual place like that, and he let me grab a couple pics of it.

    Jetfire is his good luck charm!! He must have kept him in there, in his box a lot, Jetfire's doesn't have the yellowing that's so common for that one.


    Guess as a good luck charm, hope it's working and he doesn't have any dental disasters...that's a very nice story, thanks for sharing. :)

    Awesome! Although, I suppose while it would be cool to have a dentist with similar interests, the less talkative a dentist is, the less unpleasant your trips tend to be, since it's kind of hard to have a conversation when someone's sticking tools in your mouth.

    I was expecting a story where the dentist pulled your tooth while shouting "GIVE ME YOUR TOOTH!" This was a much better story. :thumbs2:

    Regular brushing will prevent your Jetfire from yellowing.

    You should've tried to extract his Jetfire when he wasn't looking.
