i am just curious as to when common folks visit their dentist. do you go to your dentist for check ups, to know if you have new cavities? or you only remember your dentist when you are already suffering from a severe toothache?

I make it a point to take my kids to the dentist twice, if not once a year. I want them to have good strong teeth that they will enjoy until they grow old. As they say prevention is better than cure. That's why I also remind them to brush their teeth everyday, especially before retiring to bed at night.

This discussion could not have come at a better time!! I'm due to see my dentist shortly, next week in fact. I see my dentist regularly, every six months, they always seem to send me the next invite on time so I rarely forget. Thankfully I have not had any major problems in relation to my teeth although I have had some fillings in the past. I hope that I never have to go through another toothache as I know that they can be absolute hell! Anyway, I hope that everything is going to be ok next week! I'm usually told off as I don't floss on a regular basis but this is something that I'm not that keen on! Welcome to My Lot. Andrew

I have been meaning to go to the dentist but I don't seem to have the time. I have been to the optometrist last week and that is a good thing. Dentist would have to wait his turn. Cheers!!!
