Dentist Drills His Own Cavity On His Own Dime

Here's something you don't see every day—a dentist drilling his own tooth! He had a cavity and he filled it himself!

Doctor Isaac Qureshi of Lake Zurich, Illinois held a mirror in one hand and a drill in the other!

INSIDE EDITION's Les Trent questioned Qureshi, "Just how difficult was that to fill your own molar?"

Qureshi replied, "It was difficult, but usually we're looking through a mirror anyway when we're doing someone else's, so it wasn't really that much more difficult than a regular fillling."

He drilled out the cavity, filled it in, and then zapped the filling with a laser to harden it. His assistant, who recorded the whole thing on her iPhone, was blown away!

"I've never seen this done before," said the assistant.

A little more drilling and polishing and it's done! From start to finish, the do-it-yourself dental work took just ten minutes. Nice job!
