My Dental Hygienist baby talks me endlessly, oohs and aahs over every reduced cavity like I'm a five year old boy who has successfully recited the opening of the Gettysburg address. I think teeth agree with her. She seems so so happy to root around in people's mouths. I take half (okay...a whole...you caught me...) Valium before I go in for a cleaning so I rarely remember what we talked about so I can only give impressionistic reports.
Wow, I never considered taking drugs before going to a dentist - what a great idea! I hate the visits, so don't go nearly as often as I should. When I had my wisdom teeth taken out, they also took out my impacted eye teeth, and another tooth that a previous dentist had FUBR-ed. So seven teeth in one sitting. I had (baby) eye teeth up until a little over a year ago, when one of them finally caved. I've still got to get the damn thing replaced, but dental surgery prices here are through the roof. Bloody dentists.

"She seems so so happy to root around in people's mouths."
Good she's found one of the few slots in life where this is a feature. Probably best not mentioned when getting security clearance to become ambassador to Albania.
I get my teeth cleaned at a training college. Got a deal with the head hygienist; she not only waves the fee but slips me a fifty if I let extra students poke around. There are easier ways to get a new AAA game (it isn't pleasant) but figure I'm one of the few who has no dentistry fear; better they poke me to learn than later ineptly scare the crap out of the rest of the world. You all owe me! Plus, I always lunch at the nearby Polish place--the real excuse for going--and show up allium mouth-soaked. They want to learn they're gonna earn it. [Image Can Not Be Found]
grooowrrrr! [menace menace] rrrrowwwr!
My dentist has a hygienist who is not the sharpest knife in the drawer, although she does a pain-free job with all of those pokey metal things. One time, she asked my son if he had any health problems over the past year, and he said "no, except for the time I spontaneously combusted." She did her thing, and all went well for him, but then when it was my turn, she asked me, "did he have to go to the hospital for that?" In all seriousness! I shit you not! So now we're pretty sure there's an entry on his chart :p
