I HATED going to the dentist for what seemed like forever. Then I met Matt and his dentist introduced us to his dentist scuba diving friend in the cities. . .where I discovered you can not only enjoy visiting the dentist’s office, but even look forward to it. My favorite hygienist ever–Glenda–retired this year, her replacement is ok and the scuba diving dentist retired a few years ago, but the new dentist is better actually.
Within this little enclave of happy dentistry I’ve managed to raise a kid that enjoys dentist visits, and thinks those books and stories about kids being afraid of the dentist are hilarious. “That’s like being afraid of the circus!”
