I went to the dentist yesterday for the first time in a long while. I was a little nervous cuz I've had a toothache and I was just feeling the drill going in there, the whine, that wierd smoke, the white knuckles, all that. Plus, going to a new dentist. But it turned out to be a really good experience.
First, everyone there was a woman. That was a first. I've never had a woman dentist. That kind of set things up to be different. And then my dentist was probably just a couple years older than me. She was so nice and calm. Very gentle. And the setup of the room wasn wide open, not very officey. The effect was like I was going to my friends house, and they just happened to do dentistry.
