I’ve been terrified of dentists since childhood… the discomfort and the smell of the rubber mask, if gas was to be used… yuck and double yuck… and I was always sick after a visit.
Anyway… to cut a long story short… I have recently discovered a wonderful dentist (no, I’m not saying where)…kind, calm and so understanding… and, as a result, I have actually enjoyed my first visit in 20 years.
OH was slightly miffed/surprised to find that I only needed a general clean…and I was so relieved… that I managed to force myself to relax and breathe throughout the procedure. I even made a return appointment for a check-up in 6 months… phew… feeling as if I have climbed Everest and am waving from the summit.
Someone had told me that Dental Hygienists do not exist in France… and I now realize that this is something the Dentist takes on board… so my new Dentist is now my friend for life… (hope she does not move away.)
Am I the only one who is such a baby… when it comes to Dental-Doings… ??
