Why I hate the dentist.
By Busty LaRue.
I hate the dentist because he always makes me feel guilty for not flossing. I hate the dentist because the chair is really uncomfortable.
I hate the dentist because he always has bad news for me like: "Your teeth are good, but you need a gum graft. You have to go to a periodontist for that. Good luck."
I hate the dentist because I looked up what is involved in a gum graft, and it's a little freaky. Now I'm stressed and TOTALLY freaked about it.
I did like the dentist because I got to use the laughing gas. It was a cool experience (first time user). I couldn't stop giggling....until it wore off and I could feel the heat from the ultrasonic on my lip. OUCH!
I also hate the dentist insurance. They require a written referral for EVERYTHING, preauthorization for EVERY procedure, no matter how minor, and they may not cover my surgery. Oh yeah, and they don't cover IV sedation for my 3 year old. Maybe they'll volunteer to come hold him down while he gets his teeth worked on and then capped? Maybe that'll teach them a lesson in how important it is to have sedation covered? Yeah, I didn't think so, either.
And that is why I hate the dentist.
