MATTHEWS, N.C. -- I know no one who likes going to the dentist for serious work. Check ups are no big deal. But the sound of that drill makes just about anyone tense up.

And then I met J.O. Clark, a dentist in Matthews, N.C. This guy makes these strange and wonderful wind-driven spinney art things that he hangs from his office ceiling to distract his patients from the evil high-pitched whurrrrrrrrr!

They're weird elaborate creatures, which gesticulate around and around into a hundred different configurations. You never see the same thing twice. And if you let your mind go, you might forget where you are.

His patients love it. In fact one of them went on and on about it in an e-mail so I had to take a look for myself.

Now you can too! Click the video and meet J.O. Clark, the dentist, the man, the artist. Oh and his office is at: 3563 Matthews-Mint Hill Rd, Matthews, NC 28105 Ph. 704-847-8090.
