Spotlight: “Dentist Dad”


This piece is about a toxic relationship, a bizarre family meeting, and the ominous feelings they inspired. It unfolds slowly, sometimes comically, and always with a looming sense of dread. Featuring shadow, suspense, a small town, and a very shitty boyfriend. And also, of course, a dentist dad.
