PennWell Dental Community
For those of you who missed it, Christina Applegate, from one of my favorite shows "Up All Night" and formerly of "Married with Children," had to have emergency dental surgery a few days ago. Poor thing was minding her own business on the set when "her tongue felt weird." She felt in the back of her mouth and noticed that half of one of her molars was missing, and it hurt like crazy.
“My tooth broke, my molar, half of it just left," she said with a laugh.
She told Jay Leno, "We Googled dentists." He asked if she had a dentist, and she assured him she does, but that he doesn't perform emergency procedures.
Apparently a very young dentist took care of her problem because Applegate compared him to Doogie Howser. But he did the job well enough to allow her to appear on Jay Leno a day after the procedure instead of being bedridden.
I kept waiting for her to say his name on the show, but she didn't. I bet that would have helped business! I'm guessing word will get around the Hollywood hallways anyway, and the dentist will have helped his business tremendously by leaving in the middle of his dinner to work on the teeth of Christina Applegate.
