I hate the dentist.  I tend to only go if something is hurting.

 i was going regularly. but....i really don't see the point. i don't want xrays, i know my teeth are healthy, i don't use flouride. i can brush and floss at home. ds hasn't been yet at all and idk if i even want to take him.

I have sooo many filled cavitities - my asthma and sinus medications dry up my mouth, which leads to more cavities. If I didn't have any issues in the past, I probably wouldn't go.

I have dental work that needed to be done when I still lived with my parents (we're talking about 14 years ago) and now I have 5 teeth that need to be pulled (he doesn't want to bother saving them) and then replaced. I also cracked the bridge I had playing baseball with Mini (ball to the side of the jaw tyvm!). I hate the dentist because all they see is dollar signs when I walked in the door. This guy is going to have a new car by the time he's done with me! LOL

The other problem is the oral surgeon is hot and it's embarrassing having him see my mouth like that.. LOL

I go every six months.  I love it.  I love how clean my teeth feel afterwards.
