A Summer Of Fun, Oh, And Going To The Dentist

Because going to the dentist beats going to the beach, any day.

A fun, warm season filled with trips to the beach, hangouts with friends, and those dreadful doctors' appointments you simply couldn’t fit in during the school year.

And yes, I know, procrastination is a strong skill for most college students, but everyone has to face their fears at some point - especially, the dentist.

These stages are for you bravesouls, and your pearly whites...

The Small Talk with the Hygienist Stage

*Inserts 95 tools in my mouth* Yes, now is the time for you to ask me how school is going, how my family is, if I have any pets, andwhat my social security number is. You know, the basics.

The "Do you floss?" Stage

Why yes, I do, but we all know you are going to scrape my gums until they bleed, and not believe me.

The "The dentist will see you now" Stage

Oh boy. Will I have a cavity? Will I not? This is the moment of truth.

The "Oh my god, I don't want to come back again next week" Stage

Please no cavities. Please no cavities. Please. No. Cavities.

The Self Diagnose and Reassure Myself Stage

Okay, so both the hygienist and the dentist haven’t said the 'C' word... cavity. Someone throw me my new toothbrush and start the car already, because that must mean I’m cavity free, right?

The "Thank God it's over!" Stage

See you in six months? More like see you never!

The Time To Look in the Mirror a Little Too Long Stage

Those little cracks, in between my teeth? I can see them?! And those ridges of my teeth? I can feel them?! I am the image of good oral hygiene.

The "Reward Me, Peasant!" Stage

Did you go to the dentist today? No, you didn’t?! Well I did, and I’ll have a chocolate milkshake and a large fry with that too, thank you.

The "Oh no, where did time go?!" Stage

I am never coming back here. I am never coming ba - wait, it’s been six months already?! How am I back here so soon?!

So, to all of you brave souls going to the dentist this summer, as dreadful it may be, you now know the drill (Pun intended, you're welcome). Your smile is worth it, and when in doubt, just think about that delicious milkshake. I know you can do it.

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.
