  • I just went to the dentist for the first time in 10 years. I have two cavities and just had a root canal. I think I am good for another 10 years

  • August. And I go again in February. I go every 6 months for my cleanings as does my little guy. I actually like going to the dentist.

  • me, the momma? last time I went was 2006. I was 38 weeks pregnant and the dental nurse was making an impression of my teeth. I kept gagged over and over and the dentist was becoming annoyed w/ us both. i saw him go into his staff break room and he came back out w/ a large salt shaker which he took the top off. he took a pincher/grabber tool and held my tongue out and before my or my husband could react he dumped the ENTIRE salt shaker onto my tongue. it did stop the gagging but it also burned off the top layers on tongue and taste buds. it was horrifically painful and traumatizing

  • I HATE the dentist but go cause I know its better for me to make sure my teeth are good or not. But I haven't gone in a year cause I dont have any insurance but my kids do of course and they go as often as the dentist tells me to take them!

  • I just went to the dentist 8 months ago. I should have went a month and a half ago, but with everything else, it wasn't really a necessity. The last time I went I had a cap put on,I have a few more things that need done, but I'm good for now....

  • I go to the dentist every 6 months for my exam and prophy, and if I need any work done I go in as needed. I was just at the Dentist on the 7th- due to breaking a tooth. Thankfully they had a cancellation and he was able to do examine the tooth and do the crown prep at that appointment. I go back on the 4th to have my exam and prophy and they also scheduled time after that to put my permanent crown on. Then hopefully I will be good to go for 6 months!

  • Only if I absolutely need to go. We have insurance but it SUCKS!! We have 6,000 dollar yearly deductible. So pretty much we never go to the doctors! (Our children do every 6 months) But we the parents put it off until it is an absolute necessity.
