Dr. Carroll James’s wickedly funny and touching series spans his forty-plus years in private dental practice, offering up a story for everyone.  

Publisher's Weekly's review states, “James’ episodic collection of adventures is wonderfully entertaining and offers delightful insight into one dentist’s irreverent mind. The author’s profession is only one of many sources of the comedy and drama in this rollicking journey through a life that embraces the unexpected.” 

You'll catch a glimpse into the worst hires in employment history, questionable family lineage, a hilarious first ski trip, amateur sheep herding, and a soggy camping trip sure to test any marriage.  Attending decidedly awkward dinner parties or hayseed weddings complete with karaoke and inebriated attendants, or risking life and limb to aid the impoverished world-wide (with near-drastic results of misspoken Spanish), as each story is genuinely original and unexpected. 

I Swear To Tell the Tooth, The Whole Tooth, And Nothing But the Tooth delights the 

bibliophile who is ready to live vicariously through Dr. James' adventures and antics. 

So Help Me, God will be available when his family finishes his book that was near completion.
