how is it going Melissa?
Okay - second opinion this morning. Said pretty much the same stuff, but I liked him a LOT better so I'm glad I went. Tomorrow I get to go to an endontist to make sure I don't need a root canal before the oral surgery. Really? Are we just all going to get together and see how much torture it's possible to inflict upon me?

I'm amazed that you can get multiple appointments in such a short period of time. Scheduling an appointment with my dentist is like ......... <drum roll>.....pulling teeth.

It's amazing how quickly the specialists can get you in when your dentist calls them personally.

I might be on my dentist's sh!t list. I have had to cancel appointments a few times because I travel. I always call 24 hours in advance but I think they have a "list". I think I'm being profiled. Where's the ACLU when you need them.

If you have cancelled appointments (even with 24 hours notice), you are definitely on a list. I work with a lot of dental practices, and they have flags and alerts attached to patients with multiple cancellations.

It takes a long time to serve the sentence . . . and never miss an appointment at 4pm or on a Friday! :) I used to travel a lot too, and now they just put me on the "cancellation list". I am due at the end of the month, so I have already called to let them know I will be home that week. Makes it easier for me, I hate appointments.

Thanks for the insider tips. Would bringing flowers to the receptionist help? Her area could use a little cheering up.

I hate the dentist, in general. I love my dentist, specifically. He's so helpful and involved and concerned. I have his home number from when Riley jacked up his mouth in his bike accident and he told us to call him whenever and he'd meet us at the office.

I feel your pain. Ive been trying to cram as much dental work as possible in before the divorce is final and I have no dental insurance. Ive never had so much work done in such little time.

I hope your mouth feels better and surgery/dental work goes well.
