I could easily shave 10-15 minutes off my dentist appointments if I stopped asking them questions, having friendly banner.
Example: have the police ever came into the office requesting x-rays to help solve a case?
Today’s answer was, “not since I’ve worked here but I hope they do.”
I also let the dentist and tech (Stephen and Bryn) know that going to the dentist was similar to going to the tattoo shop in that I’m sitting in a chair while someone leans over me with a sharp electric utensil.
And that led into a whole other conversation about how the tech’s brother got his girlfriend Erica’s name tattooed on his wrist. And then they broke up so Bryn suggested to him to get “Am” in front of “Erica”

Things not to ask while at the dentist:
Why are the holistic folk against fluoride?
Before I could say dental floss everyone but the dentist was within 2 feet of my persons and I was teeth deep in charts and graphs and scientific data and flipbook presentations.

The world is always brighter after I floss.
Speaking of which.. When I was little my mother scolded me once or twice for using too much dental floss. So I quit flossing my teeth because it was too hard to do unless I had that good minimum length.
This phobia of being wasteful with the floss continued into my adult years and for the longest time I wouldn’t floss simply because it carried said stigma.
These days I floss with as much as I want, sometimes I pull yards out at a time. It’s rather cheap when considering the consequences of not taking care of my choppers.
