I am very, very afraid of the dentist. I know that I’m not alone in this feeling but its has been years since I have been and I know that there are many bad things that are going to have to be drilled out and outright removed.
I haven’t gone mostly due to lack of insurance. My work insurance is rather expensive and it was just yesterday that I was approved for Regence insurance that will start on the 1st of May. My only problem now is getting in to see the dentist. Which, evidently, wont be until June (erg).
There is a “semi-emergency” option that they can use if I am experiencing pain (which I am) so I think that on Monday (the 30th) I will make the appointment. Its not like I’m lying about it, but the pain has been going on for so long now that I have sorta gotten used to it (except when I eat on the left side, then its pain city for me).
What I am curious about though is why the dentist is always so busy that every appointment that anyone makes is always many months out? Why not next week? What the hell are they doing? Why are they so busy? Do they just want to have a lax schedule?
It’s annoying to say the least, but at least, maybe by Monday, I can have some of the problem teeth taken care of.
