Ahhhh, this is fun

A dental examination at Balestier Primary School on June 3, 1970.

In the chair is schoolgirl Lam Siew Mei, 11, who obviously thinks dentist John Chan and his gleaming dental probe are great fun.

Ten-year-old Lee Koon Seng, however, does not seem quite sure he is going to like having his turn. But his friend Lee Fook Koh, 11, and all the girls behind him seem quite certain it is all a wonderful lark.
