Went to the dentist yesterday, and yes, it was just for a routine cleaning. My hygienist and I had a great conversation about why people fear the dentist. They know they should go in regularly, yet they put it off until there are real problems. Personally, I think she started the conversation to distract me with what she was doing in my mouth. By the way, she gave me an A+ and a new toothbrush for my efforts.
