Gifted with the power to perform dental procedures painlessly, through his touch alone, the young dentist in this comedy finds himself faced with a crisis of conscience. If he continues to work in his specialty, he will put the woman dentist in his area out of work, though she previously had a well-established practice. While he is mulling this quandary over, an investigating commission comes to town to try to find out about this unseemly change of loyalty among the town's dental patients. To keep from rocking the boat, he refuses to perform for the commissioners. Soon afterward, he begins his career over as a teacher of dental science. Ironically, when one of his students follows his procedures, he also shows miraculous powers of pain-free dentistry.
