Painless Parker was a dental renegade. He dared to challenge the dental establishment of the early 1900s with his flamboyant self-promotion - travelling from town to town with his dentistry show, proclaiming "painless" dentistry, hiring bands to play as he pulled teeth, decked out in his brushed beaver top hat and brilliant waistcoat. But he was genuinely determined to bring dental care to the poor, and equally determined never to be poor himself.

He succeeded beyond his wildest dreams: the chain of American dental clinics he established in the 1920s made him a millionaire, and the name of Painless Parker became better known than the president of the United States. This is his true, action-packed, fascinating, and delightfully entertaining account of his early days of pulling teeth in small East Coast towns, taken from his personal papers which were found many years after his death.
