The (non)wonders of dentistry
I Am Clever
So I went to the dentist the other day, and I felt I'd taken pretty good care of my teeth... WRONG!

I found out that I have 4 cavities that need to be filled. GAAAAAAHH....

More metal for my mouth... add to the collection. This'll make about 11 fillings in my mouth. I HATE it.

Plus, the hygienist was "talking down" to me all during the time she looked at my teeth. Not in the sense of being nasty, mind you, but talking to me as if I was younger than I am. She kept calling me things like "Honey" and "Sweetie", and explaining everything in really simple terms.

I wanted to say, "Hello! I'm almost 17 here - NOT 5 or 6!"

And the funny thing was, was that she had even asked me "So how old are you? Oh, 16, and you're going to be 17 soon? Do you have your driver's license then?"

It was just one of those 'silent GRRR' moments. *headdesk*

Not to make you feel bad, but it doesn't change; the last time I went to a regular dentist was when I was about 21 or 22 (I'm 30 now) and the dental hygenist actually asked me if I knew the four food groups like I was a first grader. She talked to me like a child the whole time and I haven't been back to the dentist since. I don't pay then hundreds of dollars to talk to me like that.
