i went to the dentist this morning and it was awesome. i’ll never understand why people don’t want to go there and get nice clean teeth and see cool x-rays and photos of their insides. i have lots of theories about why most people hate the dentist – guilt about not taking care of their teeth, genetically bad teeth and thus a lot of dental work needed on a consistent basis (or at least at a young age when phobias are easily formed), low oral pain tolerance and/or never had orthodontic work and don’t understand the heights oral pain can reach. then again, maybe i just had an awesome pediatric dentist. we got to pick a toy from the treasure chest at the end of every exam, the ceiling was plastered with awesome posters and the x-ray machine had a cover that made it look like a giraffe.
