  • Yes.. I'm convinced he's the devil in disguise. Dentists are sadistic bastards imho.

  • Nope! I love my dentist-- he has treated me (and my whole family) for most of my life. He is a very nice, caring person, and has a good chairside manner. As someone who used to be a Chairside dental assistant- I can tell you the right dentist can make ALL the difference!!

  • Terrified. Literally terrified. I will let my teeth rot before I am willing to go. I actually let two teeth get so bad that I had to have them pulled. I popped a Xanax before I went in and it was amazingly helpful. I was actually able to not freak out and cry for once.
    So if you have Xanax, take one before you go in.

  • No issue here. LOL I had a root canal and he couldn't get me all the way numb with the shots and I had to finally just say go for it and stop with the trying to numb me. LOL

  • I wouldn't say I fear going to the dentist but I definitely do not enjoy it.
