Here’s one that will probably make quite a few people cringe; especially those of us who find a trip to the dentist to be an experience akin to being the star of a snuff movie. It’s from 2012 so you may have seen it already. If you have then feel free to watch it again; if not then I invite you to enjoy The Root of the Problem right here on Short Film Saturday brought to you by the fine folks (well, just me) at Written in Blood!
