Open Wide



I had the most dental work I've ever had done yesterday. (Well, excluding braces and wisdom teeth extractions. I'm talking about the work of a DENTIST.) My mom was a hygienist and always took care of my teeth. She was able to retire a couple of years ago, and it's obvious I still need her help to keep healthy teeth. Both Michael and I needed work, but I had the more costly and painful procedure. I am amazed at how little pain I go through at the dentist. Think about what they are actually doing...and you only feel a twinge of pain or pressure! Amazing! I still have to go in a couple more times, but I like everyone at this new place of dentistry. Mom, I miss you cleaning and polishing my teeth while I look out the wall of windows. Your office had a smell of that polishing stuff and I actually miss that. This new office burns a Yankee Candle which is nice, but it is not your office.

BTW, Laura, I'm on Michael's insurance, not the school's.

Ooh, where did you find that picture. 'Looks like someone had a bad case of gingivitis.
Your dentist sounds good. I don't miss the smell of my office. I do miss the smell of my paycheck, lol!
