The dentist who helps make steel

I’m a dentist who works in an industrial town in India. Some of my patients are workers in the steel factory here.

The steelworkers usually want the air conditioning in my chamber to be turned down because they are used to high heat in the factory, in a “G-Blast Room” where the ambient temperature is 56 degrees centigrade, and workers take turns to go into the hot room, escaping before their skin cells congeal.
