Re: Favorite Things...

-Bold dentistry. My new dentist is timid & slow. It's almost like he's afraid to handle the instruments, and has little confidence in his skills. I don't understand, he's Creighton accredited. One would expect confidence and efficiency. Instead he repeatedly says, "JUST let me know if it hurts, I can give you some more of this. ( referring to the shots)" I don't like going to the dentist and just want to get it over with, ASAP. He's a nice enough man, but he advertises timidity as brightly as a cheap neon sign, in a sleazy red light district. It gives me a headache. I like bold dentistry. Timely dentistry. It's one of my favorite things.

Great choice. My dentist tells me what needs doing and invites me back in two weeks to do it, not caring just how long it takes me to steel myself to go in the first place. Just bloody do it!

My current favourite thing in my brand new, delivered twenty minutes ago, Yellow Submarine cookie jar...

Re: Favorite Things...

Those incredibly rare moments where you just feel intense happiness and excitement about something out of nowhere. IT'S LIKE RAILING LIFE ITSELF AND JUST GETTING SUCH A f***ING RUSH OF GOOD VIBES AND POSITIVE ENERGY... f***!!!

But it's one of those things that happens only a handful of times a year, and it only lasts a few minutes. :tears:

Me too, I can't stand when they don't just get it over with. My previous dentist actually did this to me quite often as well. He'd tell me I need to come back in two or three weeks and then he'd talk sports with me for ten, twelve, sometimes fifteen minutes. Plus I lived 60 miles away from his office! The reason I kept going to him was because he was my StepMom's brother. Well, plus he's a great guy and a good dentist. However, he's retired now, and that's why I found this new dentist. At least he's in town and I'm saving on gas money.

Awesome cookie jar!

I never understood why they do that, I can only assume to earn an extra fee. I hate the dentist already.
