Dentist creates musical drill

Report by Sophie Foster

A dentist in Indonesia has created a musical drill to help ease fears of the dreaded tool.

Dhanni Gustiana, a dental surgeon from Purworejo in Central Java, has modified a conventional dental drill by changing the buzzing sound to the music from a MP3 player.

"The children are not afraid of doctor, many of them are afraid of drill. I modified this by putting a toy on the head of the drill and telling them that the toy will clean their teeth," said Gustiana.

He spent about six million rupiah ($600) modifying the instrument, which gives his patients the option to request their own songs.
