In this lively print after a painting by Gerrit Dou, we see a dentist in a fur cap, proudly displaying the tooth he has just pulled from his patient. The patient, a young boy, grimaces in pain, holding onto his wide-brimmed hat. A copper basin, bottle, and other medical tools rest on the broad windowsill. The scene is framed by a large, illusionistic stone ledge which extends forward into the viewer's space.
