    Him and his staff. :grad:

    Except the hygentist. She was cool. :grad:

    I'm gonna do this in list form:

    1) 2 mins into meeting he tells me the sky is falling. :ohnoes:. Pre X-rays mind you. Just boom, right off the bat, instant asshole. Ok though, I can deal w/ assholes if they're good at their job.

    B) The next morning I go back for x-rays, and the broad who did them was f'n up. It was like a three stooges routine, every time she'd set it up the arm would move. This happened about 20 times. Leading to an excessive amount of bad x-rays. The doctor rushed in, told her to fuck off, and comped the x-rays.. The roof of my mouth is still bruised a week later. He then reminded me that the sky was falling, and made some really f'n sideways remarks, while selling me on an implant. He makes the crowns. It excites him. To the point that he started fumbling around, breaking his own model in the process. :facepalm:

    Still, I think "he's an asshole, but from all available evidence is good at his job. I'll deal."

    Today) following our agreed upon treatment plan I go to his oral surgeon to remove my wisdom teeth. All goes well. These people are great.. It took 5 mins. I'm not in pain and I'm not doped up. :cheer:

    So, I make an appointment to remove the final one next week, and to just consult w/ the surgeon on his thoughts/prices for an eventual implant. All is good... Until I check my messages.. The original dentist office left a very flustered, ill informed, and BITCHY message about my plans to consult w/ the surgeon :wtf:. Ya see, they referred me to this surgeon (who does implants) but NOT for the implant. I guess he uses a different guy for the crown. :dontknow:. They want me to meet w/ their guy in the mid-summer. Which doesn't sit well w/ me.

    5 mins later I get a call from the surgeons office, informing me that my primary dentist has canceled my appointment for next week. :wtf: :scratch: I explained the situation as best as I could- as I literally just had teeth yanked, and my mouth is still full of gauze. Told her flat out what I think; they're ill-informed and crossing the line.. There's some greedy shenanigans afoot! :grad:

    I'm gonna call tomorrow to find out exactly who the fuck they think they are. Then me and that doctor are gonna have a conversation. Depending on how that goes, I'll probably be finding a new dentist.

    It's easy to work in a mouth that's been affected by meth mouth to the point where all the teeth have fallen out.

    I honestly don't trust dentists. I always feel like they're less interested in my oral health and more interested in selling me more unnecessary services.

    Why would you get an implant for wisdom teeth?


    I love love love my dentist office. Theres four doctors, two red dot Indians and two Koreans. You cant go wrong with haji and Korean dentists.

    I hear ya. My only saving grace is my wife is a hygienist, so my dental work is free.

    Try a Sonicare. Not for everyone but, I get how a chick loves a vibrator after using it. :D
