Going to the dentist

Not a happy camper. Hate the dentist - would totally prefer a full Obgyn exam than a dental exam... wish me luck :teethchatter:
Of course my kids are excited for me to get a fun prize at the end and get to wear fun glasses during the exam (not to mention getting to watch Dora/Diego while I'm there...) Not breaking the news to them that grown up dentists are waaaay less fun than kid dentists!

I hate dental appts too.. cleanings, etc. Cleanings always leave my mouth sore.. well, not always.. depends on who does it. I haven't been yet and I should have.. I cancelled it and they were suppose to call me back and reschedule but never did for my 6 month cleaning. So I'll wait til after maternity leave to do it lol

GL and maybe it'll be fast.

I get to go next week. I don't mind the dentist other than that I rarely escape cavity free thanks to my terrible enamel. Maybe that's why it doesn't bother me, I'm so used to it.

Oh lady... you gotta go! I took a dentist hiatus a few years back (also for about 2 years, maybe even longer), and am now back to every 6 months like clockwork... way better in small but steady doses! Call tomorrow and make an appointment!!!

I have been putting mine off because I hate finding childcare and I can't take my kids with me.
I finally am going this week right after my hubby so we can tag team the kids.
My dentist has tvs and I can watch HGTV while I have my teeth cleaned!
I just hate going because I'm really behind on my fillings and every dang time I go I have another one...
