One recent weekend, after chewing on a sparerib bone, I was forced to call my good friend Dr. Michael Yeun. A tooth had cracked and part of it had fallen out. He was kind enough to return and meet me at his office on Forest Avenue at once. There, he did some patchwork to hold the tooth in place until he could make an appointment for me and attend to the tooth properly. We set that for a few days later. It seems that eating spareribs and chewing on the bone causes a lot of work for a dentist!
