Gary, a former dentist living in a dementia care center, gets confused — and it worries him. Staff in the center say they have figured out a way to redirect him and relieve his anxiety.

Gary believes he is still in a dentistry practice. “It’s not really a medical building or something like that,” he says. “But here we are; I ain’t never leaving,” he muses. It’s kind of strange that way.” A staff members says one of the ways they redirect him is by having him examine their teeth.
