Overview Edit

Dan is convinced his dentist is evil and enlists Chris to help him expose the fiend's secret agenda.

Summary Edit

After accidentally having one of his teeth knocked out by a teddy bear his dentist had given him as a child, Dan begrudgingly lets Chris take him to the dentist, even though he believed the dentist was evil.

Since Dan had only been to the dentist once in his life, when he was a child, he went to see his childhood dentist instead of going to see an adult office.

As the dentist was about to begin working on his teeth, Dan changed his mind and tried to escape, but the dentist sedated him. Once Dan was sedated, the nurse asked if Dan was like this when he was a kid, to which Dr. Pullum replied: "he was smaller."

As they were driving home, Chris told Dan that while the dentist had been able to replace his tooth, he had been unable to fill in some of his cavities because the sedative wore off too soon, so Dan would have to go back the next week. This reinforces Dan's belief that the man is evil, so he decides to go after the dentist.

When he does, he and Chris discover that Dan was right and that the dentist was a supervillain. After following the dentist supervillian to his secret base, Dan broke the dentist's teeth and blew up his lair. After this, the dentist then rises from the rubble of his lair. Distraught he yelled Dan's name, hinting a return.
