My Dentist

My dentist is Vietnamese-American. I have been with him since I started working for George Mason, which is over five years. I visited his office every six months for cleaning and checkup. Except for the previous visit, which required a crown, he doesn’t try to create additional services like previous dentists I had.

Every time we met each other, he would greet me with a handshake and how are you. One time I tried to speak to him in Vietnamese, but he didn’t respond. So we spoke in English ever since.

In my recent visit, I wondered about his family. Does he have wife and kids? What if I were to give his children some candies? Then I realized that he wouldn’t appreciate that.
