Just caught this flick at the Seattle International Film Festival 2001. I was very impressed. Excellent use of music, color, locations. Vivid presentation of a somewhat confused (therefore, human) mental state. Some haunting, even disturbing images. Filmmakers use the inherent fear most people have of dentists to make a statement about emotional pain and loneliness. Reminded me somewhat of "Cemetery Man" - both Italian films, of course, but moreover, detailed journeys inside the mind and world of one character, a separate reality from everyone else.
Be warned - this is a somewhat surreal film, with some graphic images. It will stay with you afterwards.
