The first time I visited my dentist, I was shocked at how much she was willing to cut my teeth for free.
It was the first time she’d ever done my mouth for me.
She cut my nails in a manner that I’ve never seen before.
I’m not even sure how to describe how she cut my fingers with such a precise, controlled, and precise precision.
It was so beautiful.
That was her first appointment.
I’d never seen someone cut my hands, so it was an emotional roller coaster for me, but I was also very happy for her.
She gave me the advice to never take my hands off my teeth again, but then I had to ask her what she would do if I had a problem.
She said, “You should have a checkup, but you shouldn’t worry about it too much.
It’s a little bit of a shock.”
That made me laugh, because I was scared to ask because I thought, “Oh, no.
It felt like I was going through some kind of trauma.
I was just happy to get my teeth checked.
My dentist then offered to give me a free checkup.
I didn’t have a problem with the checkup because I felt that I would have been a bit more anxious.
But I was so happy that she offered me a check-up because it made me feel like I could do whatever I wanted.
Then I had another appointment the next day, and I had this great feeling.
She didn’t cut my wrists at all.
She didn’t shave my eyebrows or anything.
She gave me a prescription for a dental implant.
In retrospect, I probably would have liked a different appointment.
But I knew she was honest.
One thing she told me was that it would take her some time to work out exactly what my problems were, because it’s a delicate procedure.
And she said, I don’t think it will be that hard.
She has an appointment for me today and she’ll tell me what I need to do.
So I went into the appointment and I went in there and I did it, and within about five minutes, I felt like the doctor had listened to me and understood that my problem was real.
After the surgery, I went home and I was like, “This was worth it.”
