A hard drinking dentist, with bad teeth, from Sweden, who installed Duo's gold teeth; did you find this dentist on Yelp Duo? I can't tell if you had a really great time with this dentist or are just being really hard on him?

I hope he doesn't drink on the job. :)

"My dentist drinks too much" should be accepted. In English, that it is alcohol is implied.

    I know I said it right and you showed it as incorrect! This happens too often.

    Dl states MY DENTIST DRINKS TOO MUCH, ok. My response MY DENTIST DRINKS A LOT was marked wrong. Both are the same?

    Not necessarily. "A lot" doesn't always imply that someone is drinking "too much". I could say that someone drinks "a lot" of alcohol, but not "too much". Does that make sense? Sorry for the late-ish reply.

    I am unable to answer!, it marks me wrong as soon as I touch the screen to speak!

    How does one say alcoholic in German?

    I'm doing a root canal on a green owl. Hmm, I think I'll have a few drinks first.

    If you drink more than your doctor, it means that you are an alcoholic.
