I had a dental check up today with a new dentist and I don't have any cavities! To celebrate, I got this:
Just kidding! I ate some strawberries and yogurt instead. I bought a Groupon for $40 which included an exam, x-rays and cleaning at Capitol Dental. I was a little concerned at first because I had to wait for 30 minutes before being seen and the receptionist discussed another patient's procedure really loudly so everyone in the waiting room could hear.
What I did like was that the dentist said I had really great teeth in excellent shape, which was nice compared to my other dentist who, on my first visit there, asked me if I'd ever considered braces. Yes, I did consider them, in grades 7 through 9.
There was just a little bit of staining on the tops of my teeth. I said, "must be from all that red wine I drink" and the dentist said, "oh, what kind?" and I said, "red". Then he asked, "what kind of red?". And I said "whatever's on sale" and he said, "you mean whatever's in your glass?" Sassy!
The hygienist did a really thorough job scraping and cleaning. I was impressed. At my old place they barely even scraped and I always felt like there was some plaque left over. I would go back once I get dental coverage through my job.
