About this memory

The four Bow windows on the second floor were where you had to go to visit the School Dentist.
There was always a smell of Disinfectant and Gas.
Probably one of the worst memory of schooldays, as the dentists seemed to think that teeth could never be saved so nearly every visit ended up with a missing tooth.
