The dentist – a masterpiece by Paquita Gutiérrez

Fear and courage captured on canvas

Paquita Gutiérrez, a talented artist, takes us into her world of fear and courage with her impressive painting “The Dentist.” This work tells the story of Paquita’s own fear of dentists, a fear shared by many of us. The painting captures the intense emotion and excitement of a visit to the dentist, with Paquita capturing her personal experience with eminent dentist Dr. Salomon Mimran.

A story of pain and hope

The painting begins with Paquita’s days-long struggle against a painful tooth. Despite her attempts to relieve the pain with painkillers and a visit to her neighbor Carmen for talk therapy, the pain remains unbearable. Finally, she decides to make an appointment with Dr. Mimran, whose reputation as a dentist is the talk of Paris.

The climax of the story

In the dental chair, with a deformed jaw due to a huge abscess, Paquita experiences the fear and pain that many of us dread. The doctor, reassuring her with empty promises, struggles to pull the inflamed molar. After multiple injections and superhuman effort, he finally succeeds, only to discover that he has pulled a healthy tooth. This moment of irony and despair is masterfully captured in the painting.
