Dentist Invents Musical Drill

Does the high-pitched whirring of a dentist drill give you a serious case of the flop sweats? Dr. Dhanni Gustiana has the answer. The dentist from Java, Indonesia has modified the traditional dentist’s drill to play mp3s…and it even takes requests. Dr. Gustiana spent 6 million rupiah (about $595) to modify the drill, which he says is to calm his younger patients (and terrified adults). The music even plays louder when the patient’s mouth is open. So, next time you need a root canal, request some “Gangnam Style” and have a great time. Easy on the chair-dancing, though.
