(** Two of the scariest dentists you may have seen in movies **)
Last year, around this time, it was me in the dentist chair. I blogged about it… about my fears, about what happened and what I needed to have done after not visiting the dentist in about 2 years. Well, this year, here we are, on the brink of Dental Month in the veterinary world, and it’s our longtime hospital administrator, Josh, who finds himself at the dentist. Josh doesn’t really love the dentist. Let me say that differently: he doesn’t even like the dentist. He tries to avoid going, he doesn’t want to pay for anything that isn’t “absolutely necessary” or “causing pain”. I’m sure all of you who know how stories like this go are clued into what’s coming next. You’re right: this doesn’t always turn out in Josh’s favor. Those times dismissing the need for a dentist visit (even just for a check-up) can so easily lead to those things that most of us agree to fear: root canals, fillings and crowns, etc.
