Like him. Like him. Like him.

I do believe he was the best dentist I have ever had do work on my mouth! No horror stories - thankfully!!! The sneezes came before and long after the visit. (Answer to prayer.) I was in and out in one hour, and that was following a filling. Not much pain. I did forget to close my eyes, and I saw The Needle headed my way! Shivers!!!! Other than that (and the garlic tasting something that was in my mouth), I was fine. Within an hour of leaving the office, I was eating. By evening, there was no sign that I had even seen a dentist that day! No complaints! The other exciting thing was that no other major problems were found!!! I am used to going to get something fixed and being told there are about three other cavities, too. I am not a pop, tea or coffee drinker, haven't chewed gum in four years, stopped eating hard candy. . . I just happen to be plagued with soft teeth. Untold thousands of dollars have been spent on my mouth. I told Troy that if he pondered how expensive my words were, he would listen a little closer each time I speak! :-)
Oh, yes, I need to mention - the bill was very reasonable. (Another answer to prayer!)

I'm so happy for you! I've never been afraid of the dentist, but I haven't had the problems with my mouth. My dad is still terrified.

So glad things went so well for you and that you found a really good dentist!

The moral of the dentist story is if you dread it bad enough it rarely lives up to it. The best time to go to the dentist is right after having a baby because you feel the most invincible. Hopefully the cold Easter weekend will help your allergies. I enjoy your blog.

Martha, I too have soft teeth. Thousands have been spent on my mouth too, but now I cannot do it anymore and are having them pulled. But I am older than you, too. So if you can save them, it is the best thing. Glad it went ok and no more major problems were found.

Yea!! I'm glad your dentist experience was as pleasurable as it could be!! I'm also relieved for you that you didn't have to do an open mouthed sneeze on the dentist!

You know, I just don't know how you could do it (picture me with my head tilted back, mouth open wide, trying to simulate a sneeze). Maybe at that particular angle, it would be impossible?

Praise the Lord that the dentist appointment went as well as dentist appointments can go. YEA!

Glad it was relatively painless. I've had problems ever since i had kids, so we've racked up some bills too. Has Troy thought of switching to dentistry?

Martha,
That's so funny that you mention the baby part. . . Those thoughts were going through my mind as the dentist and helper were firing up their equipment. My racing mind was saying, "I was able to go through a 36 hour labor with no main peds, I can do this!" It is amazing what a role your mind can play!
