Trip to the Dentist

Yesterday I went to the dentist. I left work at 2:30, YEAH! But...I left work early to go to the dentist. Not so sure that that's a good trade off. Hmmm...

Anyway, it's not really the actual dentist that makes me hate going it's...

The tools that they use. I know that I make the most painful faces. Yesterday the hygenist was like, are you ok? I would have gone into a explanation of my faces then but there were tools in my mouth so I just said, "Yes".

But the real reason that I make faces is that I hate the sound of the scratching on my teeth. You know, when they take that little pokie thing that scrap all of the plaque off of your teeth. That just makes me crazy!

Another thing that I hate is that they try to have a converstaion with you while they have like 20 tools in your mouth. I wonder if they have to take a class in how to have a one-sided conversation. Or maybe classes like, how to ask yes and no questions.

The next thing that happens is that they use that nasty toothpaste that is mixed with sand to polish your teeth. I hate that stuff. There are 2 reasons: 1) They always use peppermint. 2) The texture is just wrong! I'm just glad that everyday toothpaste is smooth and creamy!

Then she says that she's going to go get the dentist. When he arrives she gives him a post-it note with things to check out. This is the worst because this is the point when they tell me that I might have cavities! YIKES! But yesterday I was all clear...just to keep watching the teeth that were on the post-it.

Then you get the bill and you realize that the dentist gets paid $41 for the exam that took him like 2 minutes to perform! I need to become a dentist!
