Do You Have a Dentist Story?

Hi Neighbors!

Good to have you visit today!  Do any of you have a dental story?  I am sure many of you do.  I have several.  Some are about my experiences, and then some are from when my husband was a dental assistant. He never worked for an Orem Dentist, but he does have some funny stories that occurred.

I will share my story first.  I was scheduled to have all four of my wisdom teeth pulled the same day.  Since I had small children at home, I asked a friend to come over and watch them while I was gone.  Well, that might have been my big mistake.  She arrived early and as we were talking she started to share some of the horror stories she had heard about having your wisdom teeth removed.  I am not afraid of having dental work done, but nor is it my favorite thing to have done.  By the time she was done and I was on my way, I was not feeling the greatest about having my teeth pulled.  After arriving at the dental clinic the doctor asked a few questions and took my blood pressure.  When he saw how high it was he asked if I was afraid to have the work done.  I explained to him what had happened and he started laughing.  He then took some time to reassure me that problems like that were not common and were the exception.  After talking for a few minutes he again checked my blood pressure and we were ready to go.  Needless to say, it didn't hurt and I recovered quickly.  So, I learned not to listen to stories before going to a dental appointment!

One of the craziest things that happened when my husband was an assistant was he was called in one evening to help with a teenager who had been playing basketball who had been elbowed in the mouth.  One of his front two teeth had been knocked crooked and needed to be put back into place and then secured to the tooth next to it so it could heal.  The dentist warned the young man to take it easy and rest a few days.  Imagine their surprise when he showed up the next day and the tooth next to it had been knocked out of place while playing basketball.  When the dentist was done he told the young man he better not play basketball any time soon and that he did not want to see him again for the same thing.

What do you think?  Have a story to share?  What would you have done with your child if the above story had occurred?  Leave a comment and come back soon for a visit At the Fence.
