Get your teeth into this week's dentist-themed creative writing exercise!

What is your earliest memory of visiting a dentist? Could you set a short story or scene from a play in a dentist’s waiting room?

Have you ever had a dream about going to the dentist? What happened? Try giving this dream to one of your characters. Experiment with different genres – for instance romance, horror or comedy.
