Caption: Dentist pulling a tooth. 19th-century artwork showing a dentist and his patient within a stone archway. The dentist is holding up the bloody tooth he has just pulled from the young male patient who is spitting out blood. A symbolic crocodile is hanging from the ceiling. This artwork, titled 'The Dentist and His Patient', is oil-on-metal, after an earlier artwork by 17th-century Dutch painter Gerard Dou.
