This morning was the first time I went to the dentist in about 2 or 3 years. I didn't make it a priority when I was in school, because I had class and work and the dentist that my family used was not open on the weekends. Also, I have never had any cavities, worn retainers, had braces, etc, so I never saw the need to go. I am not scared of the dentist, like some people, but that is not to say I haven't had bad experiences (When I was young, I got 5 teeth pulled out with no numbing, no nothing, needless to say we switched dentists after that). This morning I went to Dr. Browne in San Diego. He was recommended by Jonna (one of the ladies I work with). She said he was great, and that he was. He was very nice and very personable. Unfortunately they did not have a slot open for cleaning, so I just had to get x-rays done (a total of 30). Although I was only there for about 30 minutes, they made me feel great. Dr. Browne told me that even though I went about 3 years without a cleaning my teeth look great and then he told me I was a "goddess". Normally I hate compliments, and I know he didn't mean it literally, but it made me smile (but I guess that is the dentist's job, huh, to make people smile :) ). Well, enough about my teeth, but I am looking forward to go back in February for my cleaning.
