It peaked at number 12 in Finland.
Larry Flick from Billboard wrote that the song "already has enjoyed a very hot run through much of England and Europe. The record's peppy pop/NRG personality is enhanced by rousing handclaps, insistent piano lines, and a chirpy gospel choir. Truly irresistible tune will have you raising your hands to the sky and singing along with the wonderfully catchy chorus." Music & Media commented, "Pulling teeth is apperently [sic] not so painful after all, because down at the doctor's a gospel choir breaks loose on a dance beat." The Network Forty noted that the song is "creating a buzz in the clubs".
