Because my dentist is retiring this month, I decided to take care of all of my dental problems before she leaves. She's excellent, and how could I trust anyone else?
Got an extra six grand this year? Send it to me.
There's a reason that I don't go to the dentist, unbidden by an actual problem. My dentist wryly commented that my pattern of dental health was emergency management.
Well, yeah. It hurts and it's expensive.
