I knew you didn't like the dentist but I didn't realize it was that tramatic for you. I feel your pain in that I too hate needles and don't do well when they are out and about. Hope the yarn shopping therapy helps to perk things up for you!


Yikes, that is a terrible dental practice. I'm amazed that woman is still a hygienist. Obviously your "issues" are global and this woman was terrible. I'm glad your new dentist is more forgiving and doing what you need to make you a bit more comfortable.


You poor thing!!!

It's kind of funny when you write it they way you did, but I totally sympathize with your fears. I worked for a woman who used to have to take valium or something in order to go to the dentist at all.

I had a couple of crowns done and was going to say that they were a piece of cake. But I didn't gag on mine. :-)

Hope the rest goes well.

I've got my own childhood dental "trauma" to tell. But I guess it only goes to show that most of us who are afraid of seeing the dentist started with a mishap when we were younger.

When I moved to North Charleston in my late 20s, I started looking for the local dentist. I really dreaded it at first but hey, I'd choose to my teeth being drilled than loosing them all.

Well, I understand that most of us have such unforgettable memories with dentists especially during our childhood. But nowadays, some of them are now being competitive both in techniques and people skills and even children would be glad to keep coming back and have a check-up with them.
