Am I a Scary-Looking Broad or What?

Darcy and I both worked through our lunch yesterday, eating at our desks, so that we could run together at the end of the day. I had to bail on our “running date” though, because I got a last minute call from the dentist’s office asking if I could come in that day for a do-over of my impressions. I was like, “You’re kidding! They took them three times on Saturday!” Yes. Three times on my uppers and three times on my lowers so I had that clay stuff in my mouth six times on Saturday, and then I have to do it again. That stuff does not taste good. I know because I accidentally swallowed some of it last week. She said I would be fine, though. And so far, so good.

I guess the woman who did them yesterday is the “expert” on these things because she only had to do it once and she said we were good. I hope this means I don’t have to come back and do it over again. LOL.

They didn’t have my client notes up this time around. I guess they figured that we would be in and out, which we were. I forgot to share with you the picture above from last Saturday, though. They had my notes up and Brian and I were cracking up, reading it. It had notes in there like, “likes to hold the suction.” I’m glad they know and have noted this because I salivate a lot during treatment and dentists/hygienists can never keep up with it. Every two seconds I’m asking for suction so I don’t drown in my saliva and sometimes their hands are full so I have to wait. I need it so frequently that they might as well just give me the darn thing. Yes. I do like to hold the suction so I can stick it in my mouth whenever I want.

They also have notes in there that I do not like to miss work so I prefer Saturday dental appointments. We had to make an exception yesterday because the impressions needed to be sent to the Invisalign people right away, and I think the person they have who is an “expert” at taking these impressions doesn’t work on Saturdays. Obviously, none of the other staff can do it as well as she does.

Being able to read their notes on me was a little strange. They didn’t write any bad stuff, but what if there were? Like “watch out for terrible halitosis” or “be sure to wear a gas mask” or “crabby old broad” (they had “nice lady” on mine) or “lots of plaque because she never flosses” — that sort of stuff? I asked the very nice lady, who worked very hard to get some good impressions of my teeth (albeit in vain), this last Saturday and she told me they don’t write any bad stuff. I’m absolutely, positively sure they do. They probably just write it in code. =P

Anyway, I don’t get why people hate going to the dentist. It’s always fun for me. The only thing I don’t like is when I have to miss work. Now that we’ve found a dental office that has some Saturday hours a couple of times a month though, we are golden. That was really the main reason that we switched dentists. Well, besides the fact that Dr. Begnoche is hot. LOL.
