cavities make me think

Do ventriloquists have normal, intelligible conversations with dentists while they're getting their teeth worked on? I've always hated when dentists or their assistants ask me questions that require much more than just a yes or no answer. Like "So where you working these days?" or "When did you cut your hair?" or "Can you name all of the states in alphabetical order for me?" Okay, that last one was made up, but you get the idea. I'm sure you've experienced it yourself. I just wonder if ventriloquists have an easier time with it than us "normal" people, since they can talk without moving their mouths. If anyone knows one, find out and get back to me. Thanks.

It would be SO much simpler if the dentist and the patient were psychic. No moving of the mouth required! Just thinking about it. Convenient. But then if you think your dentist is hot, then he could read your mind and might mess up and perform the root canal on the wrong tooth....
(You are hilariously brilliant, by the way.)
