I heart novocain

My nice dentist recommended some preventative dental work in the interest of my health and well-being and not because he wants a nicer vacation rental this summer.

  1. I’m glad that you were brave and asked for something to make you more comfortable. Good for you. My favorite part is when I finally quit drooling.

    I have the hardest time actually asking for things. Like if I’m miserable and they don’t offer anything then maybe I’m supposed to be miserable? Ridiculous, isn’t it? Glad you were brave and asked!

    Great. Nightmares tonight for me.

  5. I miss the good ol’ days when they loaded you up with laughing gas. It made going to the dentist a close second to an evening at a comedy club.

  7. Love this! I have the WORST fear of dentists. Actually they called me yesterday to schedule a cleaning and luckily my daughter was having a meltdown in the background and the tech said maybe she should call me back at a better time. I should slip my daughter five bucks for that one!
