Sometimes people put off going to the dentist because of their fear. That would be me !! My dentist is young however he belongs to the old school; old-school dentists see “lecturing” and negative remarks as a good way of frightening people into compliance. This just makes me feel put down and stupid as I leave his office with an estimate for $3,000.00 for work I need done. I don't have dental insurance and this estimate blows me away.
Well, Junebug, back a few years ago I fractured a moler on carmel corn at Christmas time. I was expecting to be told I needed a crown. No deal, I had fractured the tooth all the way down and I needed to go to the oral surgeon. Would you believe I left the office and went to the parking lot at Target and cried..................my tooth was terminal. Right before Christmas, Merry Christmas to me and I know longer eat carmel corn. I mourned my tooth.
I would rather do cart wheels in the sand then go to the dentist but knowing you are going to follow through with the dentist gives me inspiration.
You are one awesome person.
