Dentists were very fond of pulling your teeth out for any reason in those days, I had 4 back teeth out (by Cocaine) because my teeth were crooked and they said there was not enough room for them, no braces then. Fortunately my mum worked in the house so I was able to go and sit in the house afterwards. The dentist was in Moseley Avenue by the library.

There was a dentist in Daventry Road that I used in the 1960's. On one occasion I had to have a wisdom tooth removed, the dentist didn't seem himself, As he was working on me he kept whistling a tune. After some time and a struggle he told me that he had had a car accident on his way into work and was still nervous. He apologised, told me that he had only managed to remove half of the tooth and asked me to come back the following week. Not the best experience.

I think all of us who had horrible experiences with dentists years ago never forget them. Even though they play nice music and have mobiles on the ceiling, I still dread going and grip the arms of the chair and hold my breath! It was a choice of gas or cocaine for extractions, both horrible.

When we moved to Tamworth the family dentist was nicknamed Butcher Boyd. I swear he had a card game going in the back room as he would keep disappearing.

Does anyone recall a dentist on Station Road West (just a few steps from Foleshill Rd, opposite the General Wolfe)? He was my first dentist in Cov in the early sixties, and I recall him with a measure of horror and ingrained memories of what I considered his butchery, reinforced, no doubt, by the fact that there was a Dix the Butcher just round the corner! I ask, having just seen a piece on the TV about Jimmy Dix, a Nuneaton dentist of the 1930s who apparently was the pioneer of surfing (of all things!) in Britain. Seems quite a coincidence, and makes me wonder if they were related.

Kimbo, Sure do! He tried take my wisdom tooth out, nearly broke my ribs with his knee on them, black and blue for months. Broke the tooth off, and left it at that - it finally came out twenty years later. Never went back again.
