Am I the only one in the world who doesn't dread going to the dentist? I'm very relaxed in the chair, with slurping things hanging out of my mouth and whirring, shrieking things going in. No problem.
My favorite dental story is about the time I had this older, traditional dentist who needed to take a mold of my tooth, so a crown could be made. When the goopy tooth cement tray (or whatever it's called) had been stuck to my gums for several minutes, he pulled it out and examined the imprint.
"Hm," he grunted. "That didn't quite come out. We're going to have to do that over again."
I hesitated, then said, "That's strange. I'm usually very good at impressions."
The old guy chuckled briefly and I knew I had succeeded at dental humor!
So, is there anyone else out there who does NOT dread dental appointments? Am I really the only one?
