the Dentist

Tomorrow I have a dentist appointment. I hate going to the dentist. I know there are some people who are completely indifferent and don’t see what the big deal is, but I really dislike the dentist. I find it to be really uncomfortable and I generally spend the entire time reminding myself to relax and trying not to leave claw marks on the arms of the chair.

 I had a dental hygenist once who tried to convince me that it was really a very relaxing process. How she loves to have other people brush her teeth. I don’t know what drugs she was taking but man did I want some!

So anyways, tomorrow. 8am. Dentist. Not looking forward to it.

    I’m not afraid of the dentist. That being said, the older I get, the more I dislike it. It really is just uncomfortable. I have receding gums, too, which they always seem to want to poke at. Just thinking of that little picky thing sends a shiver down my spine. Thats probably why I don’t go nearly enough.

    Here an interesting question, though, which is worse: dentist or gynocolegist?


  2. I’m not particularly afraid of the dentist, but I am terribly afraid of having my wisdom teeth removed because that is “SURGERY”. I’ve been putting that one off for like 4 years.

    And to participate in Rachel’s informal poll – gynecologist!


  3. Ooh, Rachel, that’s a tough call! To be honest, I’d have to say the dentist. I think gyno is short and moderately uncomfortable but the dentist seems to be never ending, and ridiculously uncomfortable.

    Dave – gosh I can’t say that I have seen that movie.. I wonder why!

    I might have to say dentist too. Dotty does have a LOT more experience than most of us with the gyno at this point though, maybe something about having to go every two weeks makes it worse, I cant’ imagine why 😉
