Yep I am off to the dentist at 1pm, the first of a few scheduled appointments and something I don't think many of us enjoy.
It doesn't help me that the first job I had in life was as a Dental Surgery Assistant and so I understand all the terminology when I am lying there prone! I have been bad since I got here and avoided the dentist, apart from 2 emergency extractions, due to the scary costs.
But after falling flat on my face last month I had to go in and she found other work, so I was cornered and had to arrange to get it all done. So I now have a crown, 3 fillings and a clean ahead, plus a very large bill!
Even my dentist commented that the USA has not been a good experience for my teeth thus far! After all I have lost on average 1 per year since I got here and the jury is still out on the tooth I banged when I fell.
So I have been listening to my own 'see the dentist regularly preaching' and will bite the bullet and get my mouth in order......never something you can call fun though!
