About the Dentist

The week before last, I had to make an emergency trip to the dentist. Let me just start by saying that before that appointment I hadn't been to the dentist in a VERY long time! :) (So long, in fact, I won't mention it here.) Anyway, I had a toothache that would not go away, so I reluctantly went, and was pleasantly surprised. My dentist was very nice, his chair was comfy, and the exam area had a huge window overlooking a lovely pond. I came out much more relaxed than when I went in. What else can you ask for, right?

The verdict was that I need a root canal! (Yikes!) Other than that, I'm cavity free.

So, I would love to know, how do YOU feel about going to the dentist?

Going to the dentist sucks! I have to be very tired so I'm outta it and don't get stressed. I haven't been in 2 years. UGH. But mostly because of money. :(

I'm like you. I waited a long time in between dentists visits and ended up going when I had a tooth that was giving me too much pain to ignore. I didn't even have a regular dentist, I have to find one (and that is a whole other story...I ended up trying to go to the dentist when there was a convention of dentists in New Orleans and they all were at the convention). The one that I eventually found turned out to be very good. Made things go really easy and didn't hurt me. But I still hate to go the dentist.

Hi John,
I think most people do HATE to go to the dentist! I was wondering, yesterday, if dentists think it's gross to look in people's nasty mouths all day!! lol
