I found only one good dentist in Brooklyn, Dr. Arthur Karsden, who used this technique of shaking your cheek while giving an injection, and it worked. It was painless. And the drilling was painless. Then I moved to another state and was never able to go back to him. And I never found another dentist who would use that cheek-shaking technique.


I just found this post...you should have gone to Dr. Yankowitz. He was my father...but alas...he died in 1960 of a heart attack.
