I didn't have insurance in HS or college after my dad was laid off his job. His new one didn't offer dental coverage, so we just didn't go.
After DH and I got married I started going again. They didn't treat me any differently, granted it was a completely different office and area than where I grew up.
I went after about 15 years. I made the comment that I didn't go because I was embarrassed that it had been so long. The dentist told me she hears that all the time. They were really nice about it and we came up with a game plan to get my mouth in order.
i didnt go for 3 years. and was pregnant during that time. I had 7 cavities I was so embarrassed never had one before. The dentist was really nice and I told him I was pregnant etc and also that I hated dentists. He was really down to earth and nice. Not judgmental at all
I went over like 15 years not seeing a dentist from when I was young and covered by my dad's insurance until i was married and we had our own dental insurance. I never had any issues though so honestly I didnt even realize it had been that long. When I went in they didn't act any different towards me. I was worried something was going to be wrong since it had been so long but nope. Everything was great and no cavities for me... I've still never had one ever.
