i go to the dentist once a year for cleaning. other than that i don't. my cleaning by the way is free, so i might as well avail it. i do have a good set of teeth, i am proud to say that, so i don't obliged myself to see a dentist. in the case of waiting inside the dentist office, go find another dentist, there are many i am sure in your place. i hate also waiting, my patience run out, when i wait. what i want now, my little vanity actually, if i have money is i want to have some brace - just for teeth accessory c: ! if there are dentist out there who needs to be connected a brace, i am AVAILABLE, just make it FREE of charge hehehehe....

Well, I wouldn't really say that I would enjoy visiting the dentist but its simply something that has to be done. I actually used to be scared of dentist mainly because of my childhood experience with them. That changed a few years ago and now.. well, lets just say that I'm not so afraid anymore.. :) In fact, I will visit a dentist in about 3 hours.. hehe. I usually try to visit the dentist now twice a year and not just when I feel that thers something wrong with my teeth.

it is sure to go to dentist to clean yours but always wait until you are next, that is always the case, i usually wait every time because i don't want to go to other dentist, you can have the professional dentist to maintain you teeth.

I use a toothbrush with a minty like senstive toothpaste. I visit my dentist every six months. I used to like going to the dentist when I was a child because she never hurt me. She did a lot of preventative dental care. I hated going to the dentist when I was in my late teens. Then I went to a denist with South African postcards on the ceiling. Now I go to a different dentist and it hurts me. I hate the work that is done to my front two upper teeth each time.

I absolutely hate going to the dentist's office. I think that the reason that I hate going so much is that the last set of fillings that I had didn't hold up for very long. And then there is the fact that my daughter had her first cavity when she was four years old. The filling fell out of the tooth before she was six years old. She had it refilled and it has fallen out again. The solution according to the dentist was to go ahead and pull all of her baby teeth out so that her adult teeth could come in sooner because the filling wasn't holding because her teeth are crowded?? So, we are currently looking for a new dentist.

I don't mind the dentist so much. I like the fresh, smooth feeling of newly cleaned teeth. And when my tooth hurts, it's nice to know the dentist will make me feel better. Plus, I might be too ornery if I didn't have clean teeth. Mama says alligators are ornery because they have all those teeth and no toothbrush. I bet not going to the dentist is another reason alligators are ornery.

Hi Acie, I love visiting my dentist. i love my teeth being cleaned to the point that i don't even want to eat after a cleaning session. it's always a good practice to visit the dentist at least once or twice a year for a check up or cleaning.

Most people around me including my husband have teeth problem . Fortunately i don't have myself therefore i've never gone to the dentist so far. It's important to protect and check our teeth really from very early beginning .Now i have a baby and he has already 8 teeth . I will watch carefully about his teeth in order not to develop bad teeth in the future just as his father. As a saying here that toothache is the biggest disease .

I used to visit my dentist every 2 weeks to have my braces adjusted. After having my braces I just go once a year for check ups to get my teeth cleaned and checked for cavities. I love going to the dentist because my dentist has become a good friend of mine. We also have small chats and we've become good friends that I don't feel scared when going to the dentist anymore.
