QotD: Dentist Visits

Question: When was the last time you went to the dentist? When they're cleaning your teeth, are your eyes open or closed?

My Answer: Today. Prior to that, waaaaaaay too long ago to mention. I keep my eyes open, though sometimes I close them and almost drift off to sleep or play a round of golf in my mind. I don't mind the dentist, but I wouldn't get my teeth cleaned for fun either.

  1. July 25, 2005. I'm due for another checkup on February 6. I keep my eyes open. I like to see what they're doing.

    My dental plan at work covers routine visits, and since this coverage figures into my overall compensation package, I try to take advantage of it. I guess if I was self-employed, it might not be my first priority...

  2. I was at my dentist's office on Monday, getting a filling fixed. The nice thing is that the office has TV's in the exam rooms, so you can watch something while they work, though sometimes it's hard with all kinds of instruments and fingers jammed in your mouth.

  3. *way* too long. I usually close my eyes, bring my iPod and go to sleep, because i'm not able to hear them, they don't talk to me, which means I don't try to respond, which innterupts their cleaning process, i think I get done in about half the time. Of course, we spend ten times the time saved bullshitting :P. Mostly because my denstist is almost as much of a gadget freak as I am, we always spend time comparing our latest purchases. Oooh, you got a Treo, well, I got an iPod video.

  4. Eyes open. They have tvs in the exam rooms.

  5. My last visit to the dentist was an enlightening experience to say the least. I learned some new Japanese as well.

    Eyes wide open, in horror.
