Searching for the perfect. . .
Remember the tooth
? Well, 5+ months later, I am planning to get it fixed. In case you are wondering, I dread
mouth pain and dental bills, hence the long wait!
I have spent a good deal of this afternoon (and previous others) combing the phone book. I have attempted to get personal references but to no avail. So, out plops the Yellow Pages. I was actually quite amused by some of the ads, and what they offered:
1. One office is where you may have very little or no memory of your visit. (Sounds good, but what if they dig through my purse while I have "no memory?!")
2. One place offers anxiety free dentistry. (Are they referring to the dentists or patients? :-)
3. If you are looking for a dentist who knows his stuff, is compassionate, truly understanding, and approachable, this is the guy. So unusual in his approach, you will be amazed at your own easy feeling with him. (Sounds a bit like something from a romance novel.)
4. Smile Makeovers. (Reminds me of a show.)
5. Nervous or anxious about your dental visits?
I had to laugh at this ad which claimed a particular office as perfect for dental phobics
. . . It made me think of a fellow blogger
. (Sorry, Gene. I couldn't resist! :-)
--I finally settled with the Greenville Smile Center. (If anyone from my church knows horror stories of this place, please tell me! I do not need more blogging material!) They have a nice ad, more than one dentist on site, and claim to be affordable. (Choking! As affordable as dental procedures can be.) The dreaded day is April 5 at nine in the morning. Yes, my mouth and stomach are hurting at this moment!
After finishing the phone conversation with the receptionist, I went to the kitchen to find. . .
a hungry boy who helped himself to yogurt and animal crackers. He "wikes dem." By looking at the pile, that is obvious. I only hope he got enough!
