I don’t appreciate going to see the dentist for our annual teeth cleaning.
I procrastinate for as long as possible.
I don’t have dental insurance, so the appointment costs myself and others quite a bit of money. I always spend a long time sitting in the waiting room, so the start-to-finish process takes up a good deal of our afternoon. The procedure is unpleasant, uncomfortable and downright painful. Afterward, our teeth hurt so bad that it’s difficult to eat. Plus, the dentist always tries to upsell myself and others on all sorts of high-priced fluoride treatments, colorlessning treatments and gum surgery. One of our biggest complaints with the dentist office is the a/c; My last appointment was toward the end of June. The outside temperature was 87 degrees with brilliant sunshine, purple skies and high humidity. I dressed for the weather. I wore shorts, a tank top and sandals. As soon as I stepped into the waiting room, I knew I had a problem. The dentist office felt appreciate a refrigerator. I instantly started to shiver. I tried numerous odd chairs, attempting to escape the freezing chilly air blasting from overhead vents. I asked the receptionist if she could possibly raise the control machine setting, and she promised that she would, but I noticed no improvement in the temperature. I waited for nearly an hour before I was escorted into the back. I then waited in the dentist’s chair for another twenty hours with chilly air directly blowing on me. I was seriously aggravated. It’s bad enough that the dentist wastes our time and hurts our teeth. I shouldn’t need to pay such high costs for his service if he can afford to run the a/c at maximum capacity. He should create a comfortable environment for his customers. I noticed that the dentist and all of his staff were dressed in long pants and long sleeves.
