I gave Dr. Tapert such a hard time, I started seeing him from the age of around 15. Finally he'd give me a sedative to take before I came in for my appt. - ha! I'll never know if it was for my nerves, or his!! Irene used to clean my teeth, I loved that quaint old house the two of them worked out of. He was a such a nice man.
