My usual dental hygienist resigned a week before my apt. So, I had one that I used in the past...not really remembering why I didn't go back to her. She is very nice, but my teeth and gums hurt BAD the entire day/night. I know I had it in my records that I do not like the power cleaner she used. I mentioned that my teeth feel like they heat up before she started using it..... thinking that maybe she would be gentle and stop when she saw me grimace. Ok, I was wrong. I just tried my best to make it through the cleaning process. However, I really do not want to EVER have any hygienist use it on me again. I really prefer the old fashioned way of cleaning.
Since I was losing my dental insurance, I wanted everything done so I wouldn't have to worry about huge bill. That's when I found out that the office has new program that helps those without insurance. I was little peeved because I have had Cobra for 18 months and nobody ever told me about this program till now. The dental hygienist said it had been in effect about a year....Aughhhh really?! I would have cancelled my very expensive Cobra had I known about this program. Oh well...Nothing I can do about it now. This is the first time I left not feeling100 percent satisfied. I have been with office for YEARS and will come back.....but I really hope I can find a dental hygienist as wonderful as my former hygienist.
