Dr. Dhanni Gustiana is a dentist from Java, Indonesia who has modified a regular drill to play music. Gustiana’s instrument is especially designed to calm younger patients down, and also features flashing lights and cute rubber toys that can be placed on the drill’s head. Patients will be able to hear the music louder when they open their mouths.

Gustiana spend 6 million rupiah (around $595) on upgrading the drill and presented the musical instrument at the International Dental Congress in Greece earlier this year. To see a video of the drill in action, click through to the ITN site.
