Should have become a dentist

Ok so I was going to post a picture to accompany this post, however if you type "bad teeth" into google it provokes a gut wrenching reaction (and my teeth are certainly not that bad)

Long story short, I went to the dentist today, after 3 years of not going since I went to university.
I now have a £500 bill to foot.

Goodbye (well earned) research money!

Moral of the story: see your dentist regularly at least every 6 months to a year....

Ouch! I had a hefty bill when I last went as well. I'd left it 6 years- combination of my old dentist closing shop, moving around a lot, and sheer forgetfulness. Until the wisdom teeth started kicking my ass- and bank balance.

Bloody Dentists! Mine has recently deserted the NHS in favour of private practice! I have been forced to join Dentaplan against my will!!!!!!

I typed it in and it made me feel sick! I've been good my parents are strict about me going to the dentist every six months.

I also have wisdom teeth and some how got under the hospital for them.

Oh dear, commiserations on the dental bill. I dread to think what my dentist will charge me if I go get a check up.

One of my younger sisters has decided to become a dentist. She has made this decision based on my inability to secure a Pupillage. So, that's another reason why I/you should have become a dentist.

I haven't applied for pupillage yet, so no idea if I actually stand a chance!! But yes obviously I should have spent my brain power training to become a dentist, if that is there going rate for 3 fillings, one hygenist appoint and a general appointment.

But hopefully that will be my daily rate if I appear in the bailey!

£500?! Was that on the NHS?! Shall certainly be booking myself in pronto in that case. Nice work with the 'box ticking' by the way!

Private :( but I want white fillings, and we all know how much NHS hate giving out nice things :(

Another new blogger will also add you to my list!

Encino dentists are great dentists who know this about Encino and why they chose to practice there. Most dentists want the family clientele so they go out of their way to make coming to their offic
