I loved the fact my appointment time was honored and Joyce always does a great job of explaining whatever procedure/service I am going through (this time just a cleaning). I was in and out within 30 mins.
The effort of the technician continues to be appreciated. She works with what was supplied to me as anatomy when I was born and that her profession came in a bit late on in California in 1970 (?) with the Christian dentist who plays music and features the hygienist and eventually flossing. Moving on to water pick and an electric toothbrush has brought us to this point. Wow! so many years ago I thought Mr. Greene's flossing was disgusting in the bathroom built on the back stairs when the house went to indoor plumbing on Main Street. Dr. Hogan got me from belt driven to air turbine drills as he discovered what else was hiding after a front tooth was broken by a simulated hockey puck on the fire department flooded tennis courts at the park. Dr. Derry moved on to mouth models and an electric micro drill. But I would not allow even the dean of the U of D dental school to pull all my wisdom teeth. The daughter of the lawyer neighbor who became valedictorian of my high school class had hers pulled in her pre-teen years. Even odd pain when I was 21 could not induce me to go to the clinic at U of M for x-rays to decide abscess (?) though the Christian dentist did comment on occlusions years later. An artist painted the cap on the broken tooth which was by now permanent. Years of glue failure followed until I used super glue in 1982 and with that I showed up at a real dentist in 1990. The glue has worked since. Oh! Never Mind!
