Your dental reports...anyone else detest it as much as I?

went AGAIN today.
I swear, if they don't hurt you, you really didn't have service or go to the dentist.
the girl that was removing the cement in between the new crown and the other tooth, stuck me with her instrument, it KILLED.

okay, I'm done complaining for now.
oh please, someone, let me know you detest these awful folks too.
I'm sorry, I'm usually so nice

I haven't been to the dentist in 6 years since I got out of the Army. They make you go every 6 months. That should tell you how I feel about the dentist... Sorry you had a bad experience.

Sorry, LEFSE, that you had an uncomfortable experience. I've been fortunate the last 30+ years. My dentists/their staff have all been awesome when it comes to my comfort. Even when I had to have several root canals, I really didn't have much pain.

My first dentist was a female, who later became a good friend, and our current dentist is wonderful and also a friend. Maybe it's the "friend" thing that makes it work.

dentist, periodontist, and orthodontist ... I'm fine with it all ... and keeping all my teeth

(undergoing braces in my 50s believe it or not, and no it doesn't make you look or feel young)

I hate the dentist. I went to get an evaluation ~ I had been without insurance for several years. They wanted $5,000 up front before working on me. I hate dentists. I have no credit and can't finance the $5,000. I miss the old days where dentists trusted you to pay your debt and that insurance would cover the rest.

I'm already scared to death of the dentist, I was nearly drowned by one when I was 12 (funky rubber thing over my mouth to isolate a tooth, couldn't swallow) and I'm scared to death. Telling me "pay me $5000 and I'll help you or get out" hasn't helped my fears.

I really need to win the lottery so I can get my teeth fixed.

We found the best dentists, a husband and wife team about 12 years ago.

He pulled my impacted wisdom teeth under local in about 45 minutes. No pain either during or after.

They have done many things to out mouths and they are great.

Have generally had great caring dentists.

Sorry Larry. Truly nothing personal.
