First dentist appointment since surgery


#1

So I finally grew some balls and went to the dentist. It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. The dentist was really sweet and considerate. Gave me tine to sit up when I started hurting. Great bed side manors too. I was freaking myself out for no reason!

Good for you, Andrea! Things are rarely as bad as you think they are going to be. That dentist sounds like a keeper!

Yes he is excellent especially for a low income clinic! Next appointment is March 26th for a exam and treatment plane because I have some horrible teeth! I hadn’t seen a dentist since before my surgery in 2015 because of being terribly scared of how leaning back would effect my neck and cause pain but he let me go at my own pace so I could be as comfortable as possible! I will NEVER let my teeth get this bad again!
