the dentist

woohoo! I just returned from the dentist - he's a doctor, right? I only ever get good news from him! Even when I claimed to have been lazy regarding my oral hygiene habits, he said that he only had to do, "a bit of tidying up". I never leave much work for him. Funny though, I still fear going to the dentist. I have never had a filling...and twice a year I get all worked up about maybe having one.

Did dentists want to be dentists when they were kids? This came to my mind when the hygienist was polishing my choppers - do hygienists have a dream of being a hygienist? Could I be a hygienist, now? Or did I need to feel that at some point?

Do dentists and hygienists have a dream of freeing the world from plaque, and stopping the destruction of gingivitis? What is their motivation? Do they have a thing for shiny teeth like I have a thing for co-ordinating colours? What do dentists think of orthodontists?

Anyway, if your oral outcome is somewhere in your genes - I didn't get those genes passed on to me! I stomp on you, bad oral genes! (but I did get regular dental check-ups courtesy of mom and dad).

Also, I swear by Crest brand toothpaste, and a basic toothbrush. And don't tell my dentist, but I only floss a couple of times a month, and I rinse even less.

SMILE!

If only the dentist would say the same thing to me when we go visit......but noooooooooo, its lots of "you should really get that wisdom tooth taken out." Except for today. Today was, "we should really get that Crown on your tooth." Oh, and "you should really floss a little more often than you are now." Ugh.

Your "speech" reminds me of a Seinfeld episode I just watched where one of Jerry's weekly girlfiends told this joke....

Hey, what do you call a doctor who fails out of med school?

A Dentist!

I'm glad that Watley(sp?) from Seinfeld isn't my dentist!
