There's no such thing as a fun visit to the dentist. But after losing a crown last week, I had to visit the dentist.
Now, I wasn't exactly happy with the dentist I had been using. And, under the new insurance I have, he's not a preferred service provider. I won't even address all that hassle, but it seemed like as good a time as any to change.
And, what do you know, Jo (from Jo's Cafe) recommended her dentist. I looked him up, and he was on the list. So I made an appointment.
Now, like I said, there's no such thing as a fun visit to the dentist. I mean, at a minimum, you're going to have people poking around inside your mouth, likely using metal implements.
And that's if there's nothing more than an exam.
I had more than an exam.
I had a crown in my pocket. It belonged in my mouth. And they were willing to accommodate me.
I actually liked the visit. The staff was polite, and I really liked the dentist.
He replaced the crown, then he and the staff handled the hard part: making it fit properly. Lots of drilling, sanding, flossing, and such.
Despite no drugs, there wasn't a lot of pain. Some discomfort, sure. Enough that I didn't go to the ballgame last night.
But, all things considered, I now have a dentist that I like. I even scheduled a cleaning on my own. No prompting from the Wife or anything.
Thanks again, Jo, for putting me in touch with someone who make an unpleasant experience more than bearable. They made it no so bad.
I owe you one.
