A Little Book of Impressions describes life behind the mirror, probe and drill. After his unexpected encounters with dentistry from an early age and his time as a student at Guy’s Hospital in the seventies, Gerald Feaver describes embarking on a fulfilling and rewarding career that became his great passion.
He writes of the amazing people he met over the years and how his life was enriched by hearing insights into their remarkable lives (yes, dentists do allow their patients to speak sometimes!), fascinating tales of romance, intrigue and heroism. This memoir is full of humour, interspersed with some poignant and personal moments that encapsulate the life of a dentist and patients in a variety of situations.
The perception that a visit to the dentist was something to be feared or at least endured, was an anathema to him. Gerald always wanted his patients to feel relaxed and at ease. Revealing the human side of dentistry, the care and compassion that dentists strive to achieve when treating their patients, Gerald hopes that this book may help to reduce the fear that many still have about a visit to the dentist’s chair.
