I had to see a dentist today to have a cavity filled. It's been there for quite some time. I could feel it was getting bigger and would likely have started hurting soon. I haven't been to a dentist in YEARS seeing as I am meticulous about oral hygiene, very rarely have issues with my teeth and generally avoid doctors/dentists if at all possible. HOLY CRAP! I'm used to a little waiting area and you get shown back to the chair to wait for the dentist and that's about it. I wasn't even sure I was in a dentists office, they had a super fancy waiting room with a waterfall and indoor/outdoor seating. I didn't ask for one (or really care) but they gave a full tour of their "facility", on premise lab, 'sedation room', sterilization room (for the tools) and all kinds of totally random 'spa' crap I'd never imagine at a dentists (some kind of hot wax to dip your hands in, no thanks!). They had a TV for you to watch while the dentist was working (umm, how would I watch TV with 2 people hovering over my face with lights and a bunch of loud instruments in my mouth?). I wanted to go to a spa for a relaxing day, I would. I guess people must really expect some kind of 'special experience' at the dentists these days! Just thought I'd share my experience. Anyone else ever been to such a 'fancy' dentists office before?
