Clean Bill of Health
Well at least for my teeth that is.
I won't even go into how long it has been since I have been to a dentist (shhhh, mom and dad, you don't see this), but it has been a looonnngg time. Growing up I have always had healthy, cavity free health, so needless to say, my palms were sweating on my walk to the dentist office thinking how they were going to tell me that I had to have all my teeth-pulled, reconstructive jaw surgery, and braces again.
This was a new dentist office for me (if you are looking for a recommendation in the DC area, let me know), so I got the full run down of x-rays, pictures (upcloseandpersonal!) of my teeth and an all too peppy hygienist who could tell I was mashing my hands together until my knuckles turned white! (Did you know that if you had a sealant on a tooth and it came off it could actually stain your tooth!)
After a lot of scraping and me fearing the "ooo that doesn't look good" I was sent on my merry little way with a goody bag of teeth cleaning supplies. I walked out with some clean chompers and a clean bill of health! Amen!
