The dentist always gets his name wrong, calls him Jason. His name isn’t Jason but it’s close enough that he didn’t think to correct him the first couple times, and on top of that always had his mouth pried open and filled with molding clay or fingers. One of his lower incisors is coming in sideways and he’ll likely require braces to make room for it. His mother says he has his father’s teeth in his mother’s mouth. The idea of both parents in the same space goes a good way of explaining the pain every time he goes to the dentist.
