Damn dentist...

Last year I had to get a root canal, YAY ME!

The dentist I was seeing at the time did it, the crown seemed funky to me but since no one in the office said anything I assumed I was just nuts and ignored it.

Fast Forward to yesterday, new dentist (because we PCS'd) dentist is poking around, gets to that crown and goes "YIKES what happened here?" goes on to tell me that crown was put on wrong and the work is sloppy at best and it needs replacing ASAP. Great...

Scheduled that appt, find out that since that crown is only a year old MetLife PROBABLY won't cover anything. Even though it's not MY fault it's jacked up.

I posted about it to Facebook, had several friends tell me that what happened to me is SUPER common with that (old) dentist. I filed a grievance against him with MetLife today...I'm not going to see that money ever again, but maybe he'll get dropped as a preferred provider and spare other people the time and issues...

Teeth are annoying.

I hate having my teeth and feet messed with. So the dentist is a special hell for me. I take my ipod turn it WAY up and try to pretend I'm not there.

That's how I am with my teeth and feet. I need to go to the dentist, but have been avoiding it.
