I'm sort of not looking forward to tomorrow...

Well the time has come. I have to do it. I don't want to, I mean I'm okay. Nothing is bothering me, but dh said I have to go. Where? The Dentist.

DH told me on Friday that he was going to make appointments for us to go the Dentist, so he called. I LUCKED out that day because the dentist's office was closed. But then he had to go and call them today and the earliest appointment they have is TOMORROW MORNING. Uggh...

Okay, I haven't always been like this. I use to like to go to the dentist. It was nice having the cleaned and I always left the office smiling. But it wasn't until I moved and changed dentists. The first dentist I went to I walked into the office. It was the first day I had my daughter in a new day care center (that's how long ago it was!). I sat in the chair and I was looking out the window. He said to me, "You don't want to be here to you?" "You don't like dentists do you". Now mind you what I said earlier about how I LIKED to go to the dentist. This dentist was totally different than any other that I had gone too. He yelled at me. Yes, he yelled. So what did I do? I didn't go back to him. I didn't like how he talked to me and I didn't like being yelled at.

So, I went on a search for a new dentist and found one close to my house. The dentist seemed nice in the beginning. I would go in, have my teeth cleaned and leave the office smiling. But then things went downhill. At about the third or fourth time that I went in, he changed. And he yelled at me too.

Why did he yell? He said to me, "Jill, you HAVE to floss". I know I have to floss, but you know no matter how much you do it, you're not going to make the dentist happy! It wasn't just the tone of his voice (LOUD) it was how he said it to me. So I didn't go back. And I won't go back to either dentist number 1 or dentist number 2.

So tomorrow I am making a visit to dentist number 3. He already has brownie points because he's a friend of my dh's. One night dh and I went to an office party at number 3's office. I met the staff, and dentist number 3's wife. DH talked to number 3 and explained to him about my pastexperiences with the two dentists. And number 3 said to me, "I won't yell at you". So I'm sort of feeling good about that! Plus number 3 is funny! He has a nice office, and well, he said he wouldn't yell at me.

So tomorrow morning at 11:30 a.m. I will be at the dentist office. Dh will be there before me. I wonder if he would stay and hold my hand? Ooohhh, but on the other hand maybe I could get the Dentist to ZOOM my teeth!!!

I'll update tomorrow!

I brought in an All About Me LO on how much I hate flossing. My dentist is also a scrapbooker, and she thought it was hysterically funny.

I hate the dentist too usually because I hate having work done. But I found a new one and told him I had some bad experiences and he has been awesome
