I don't like to go to the dentist. Okay, that's a serious understatement. I HATE going to the dentist. But in recent years with my parents "good teeth" started to break and loose fillings I have decided that it is necessary even if I hate it.
I had some dental trauma as a child and I had a horrible root canal as an adult. After I got my crown I waited 15 years before going back to a dentist and I really didn't like the dentist I did go to see after that.
But in the past few years my husband has needed some major dental work including some oral surgery and he likes his dentist, so recently I gave them a try and I have to admit it was the best experience I've ever had in a dental chair.
I went to The Dental Care Center in Macon Georgia on Mercer University Drive. I readily admit I'm a pansy when it comes to the dentist. And maybe that is an understatement also.
And when the hygienist saw that I brought my husband to the room with me to have my teeth cleaned she asked if there was a problem. When my husband burst into laughter and said that I might need a little prompting to open my mouth. I asked if she could just knock me out and clean my teeth, but unfortunately that's not an option for just a cleaning. BUT, she did offer a spray on analgesic and that was a first for me. Of course it's two days later and my gums hurt, so I would have liked it more if she'd let me bring that little bottle home with me, but over all I got my teeth cleaned and it wasn't SO bad. She asked if I'd be back in 6 months and while I'm not up for THAT often I may go back in a year.
The only down side to my fondness of the new dentist is location. They are located about 45 minutes from Lake Sinclair. Of course there is an upside to the location, they are right next door to Macon Mall and right down the street from Sam's Club, so I also got some shopping done.
So if you, like me, are not so fond of going to the dentist. You might want to give The Dental Care Center a try. It's really not THAT bad.
