Trip to the DDS

It’s been over a year since I’ve been to the dentist. The hygienist called me sometime last Fall, but I was in the middle of Q/E stuff at work, moving, surgery, then the holidays, the Y/E stuff at work. Time just got away from me! “You look so thin! Have you lost weight?” was the first thing she said to me. I’d forgotten what it’s like for someone to notice I’d lost weight. The thrill was short lived after she proceeded to photograph the tarter build-up on the inside bottom teeth. Yes, I knew it was there. I saw it in the mirror one day and that’s what prompted me to see when the last time I was at the dentist. I freaked that it’d been over a year. Yowsa! When the hygienist was done, I had squeaky clean teeth once again. I was shown the before and after photos. She said the brushing and flossing saved me from getting gingivitis. So now I’m skinny (lol) and I have no gingivitis. What more can I ask for?

Being a hygienist, I have to say, you should go every 6 months!!! But, once a year is better than nothing! I think I am going to need you to kick me in the butt and get going on weight loss. DH and I have a bet going with another couple until July 1 to see who can lose the highest percentage of weight. I really would like to lose 15 lbs. Not good about dieting, need to exercise!! HELP!!

I'm glad that you were able to get into the dentist. I was just in last week for my 6 month checkup. Not too bad! Skinny and no gingivitis - woohoo!
