Hello, hello! I have nothing to ramble about, so this is probably going to be shorter than usual. I suppose I should say that I have been writing again the past couple of weeks (only four days a week so far, but that’s better than nothing). I’ve been trying to socialize a little. Had a movie date on Monday with a friend. Go watch Kinky Boots if you haven’t already! Anyway, yesterday I had a dentist appointment, which is pretty much the only thing I have to talk about (sad, I know).
I go to Forney Wellness for my dental hygiene needs. I totally recommend them. At least one of the dentists and one of the hygienists have experience working with people in wheelchairs, which is pretty important to me. Everyone is nice. It’s a little expensive (though not the worst I’ve come across by far) and they have a tendency to tell me a different price each time. But they’re generally great, at least for cleanings (I haven’t had to have any other procedures done *knocks on wood*), and I only see them twice a year, so it’s really not that bad moneywise.
Now, I fully admit that I hate going to the dentist. You can probably tell by the fact that dentists are demons in pretty much all of my stories when they pop up. I even bit one as a child (yeah, I was that kid, but she totally deserved it). Despite all that, my dad and I have a running joke about going to Forney Wellness, which is totally worth the usual anxiety. First, realize that they have this water pick scraper tool called a Lil Beaver 2.0.
So, being the perverts we are, we giggle like little schoolgirls a the prospect of me having a beaver in my mouth. It’s even better when the fact that it’s wet comes up. And that it’s expensive and never as pleasant as one would hope. But we can’t be too loud. There are usually children around, after all. Yeah, going to the dentist as an adult is definitely more entertaining.
Anyway! Not that anyone really wants to know, but I’m still cavity free. There are spots to watch, but there always are. What does this mean? I can eat all the things guilt free!
Wow, I almost managed to ramble the usual amount. Awesome! But, in conclusion, go check out Forney Wellness if you’re in the area and looking for a dentist. Also, feel free to share your funniest/scariest/whateverest dentist story! Do you have running jokes about your dental hygiene? Share those too!
