I can't say that I LoVe going to the dentist, but I don't really mind it. I have had some pretty awesome dentists as an adult and I stay loyal ... until I had to move from California to Utah (that was actually on my list of cons when we were weighing the move - he was THAT good) ... and when my insurance changed and the Utah dentist I had come to love and adore didn't take my insurance anymore. Sigh.
I decided to look for a really convenient dentist this time around so I found one in the same office complex as me .... a hop, skip and a jump away. Doesn't get much more convenient than that. Luckily, he came highly recommended and I really do like him. But I like my hygenist even more.
I had an appointment for a cleaning yesterday and she and I talked about the Bachelor and how crazy Michelle is, and who we thought Brad would choose in the end. She said how fun it was to meet my girls when they were in town a few weeks back, although she wasn't the hygenist who cleaned their teeth. She rents her basement out too so we talked about the fair market price we could charge for rent, and how expensive utilities are and how there is SO much value in having good renters, and how sad it is when renters trash the place.
My dentist also has a really great selection of magazines to read while you wait ... and the TV is always on a good channel in the lobby too. It just made me think how much more pleasurable some things are as an adult. I sure didn't ever "enjoy" a trip to the dentist as a kid. Although our family dentist had a really great drawer of goodies to choose from when you left!
But actually, not compared to the goodies this guy gives ... especially knowing how expensive a good toothbrush is these days. (I would make a comment about how insanely expensive cleaning visits are, but this is about happy little things, right?)
