If you have been paying attention you will remember that I visited the dentist yesterday. I could have walked but I didn’t want to be all hot and bothered by the time I arrived in his chair. Lol
One of the benefits of being a patient at a private practice is that you don’t have to wait for an appointment very long either when you book or arrive. Gone are the days of waiting months to see someone but I suppose it also helps that I can now attend any time they can see me since working from home.
We aren’t members of the practice by choice, they used to be an NHS practice but because of the changes made by government to dental practitioners they opted to opt out as it were. And if they didn’t offer a monthly plan we simply wouldn’t be able to afford to go.
But I have been a member of the practice on and off for most of my life and when you build up a trust with your dentist you don’t like to change. So I’m stuck with having to pay in to a dental plan. He is good though.
One thing he does possess which makes the visit enjoyable is a wicked sense of humour. He has me rolling about every time I visit and he always makes you feel welcome too. We got on to the subject of electric toothbrushes and I very nearly made a huge mistake.
Whilst discussing which type we prefer he said he liked to use his Oral B every couple of days because he believes they are better than the sonic brushes for stain removal. Then Suze very nearly added that she likes her sonic brush too much now and that the Oral B has been consigned to being a clit vibe.
Can you imagine his face if I had come out with that. It is strange how you can become so comfortable in conversation with someone that you forget they aren’t in the same line of work as you. Lol
If you are wondering what I am going on about, I have a head which fits on to my toothbrush which hits the spot every time. 😉 Just don’t tell my dentist.
