Do you go to the dentist as often as is recommended (at least twice a year) or do you go only when you are in pain?

Oh the dentist. The lovely annual trip to the dentist. I go once or maybe twice a year. I dislike it every time I go. The sound of the drill, the open mouth position and the cold water against my teeth make it difficult for me to get enthusiastic about my visits there. My dentist is nice and talks non stop while I'm there in a chair with my mouth open. Sometimes he asks questions and I can only grunt. Boy do I hate going to the dentist.

A Person has to have Dental Insurance to be able to go. That is one thing I have not personally had in a long time, so No, I have not been to a Dr. in a long time either.

I go regularly, that way you avoid having to go when you are in pain because if anything is wrong it's caught early.
