i dont go to the dentist so often anymore. i used to go to get braces and they hurt a lot. also, my dentist was mean. my younger sister has another dentist who she says is much better and nicer. I dont like the braces but otherwise, going to the dentist is not so bad if your dentist has a great personality. Its important to go to the dentist to have a healthy mouth and healthy teeth. dont avoid going to the dentist. your teeth could take a turn for the worst and you could be left with something you are not proud of. a healthy smile can help you have more confidence.

I do not know why but since I was a kid I have always be on the run from dentist. I just could not stand when the dentist put those cold metal stuffs into my mouth. I just hate that feeling and therefore, I hate going to the dentist.

toothbrush - dentist's bestfriend
nope. even when i was younger, i didnt reach the point where i am afraid of the dentist. this is maybe because i had a very good orientation on who and what the dentist does. before i had my first extraction, i used to visit the dentist already for check ups. the dentist was very good and she makes me smile that is why i was not afraid of her. until now, with that background that i had, i was never terrified by the thought of having to visit the dentist.

Nope. Just before because it feels weird. But now, I'm not afraid anymore. I have braces, so my fear of dentists were gone by visiting often because of adjustments. I got used to it. hehe. so it's cool. ;)

I hadn't been to a dentist for about 10 years, and knew I had some cavities, so late last year, my wife finally booked me in. I was more worried about getting a lecture, than getting the drill. However, once I got there, my dentist turned out to be quite a pretty lady, so I no longer have any fears about going to the dentist!!!
