You know I don’t know about you, but I’ve never been a fan of dentists.
Just glancing around the surgery at their tools on display reminds me of what a torture chamber would look like – not to mention the fact that you may have to refinance the house to pay the bill!
But as a 30-something gal (yes I may be approaching 40 but I’m not there yet) – I’ve been quite proud to say that “I have only ever had 1 filling in my whole entire life”. Thanks mum for not feeding me a lot of junk food and cola as a kid.
But that “Only 1 Filling” story came to an abrupt end today when I came face to face with the drill and needle. Lucky for me I was strapped into that chair because if I was going to faint, I wasn’t going to fall any great distance. (The first day I got my contact lenses is a different story, but I’ll share that one with you another day).
Anyway, the good news is that my $473 bill came down to a much more friendly $82 thanks to my Private Health Insurance Cover with MBF.
So the moral to this story is that I came into the dentist with a hole, but still managed to walk out with a smile.
It’s time to do yourself a favour, and don’t be a scaredy cat like me and keep putting off that visit to the dentist. The longer you leave it the bigger the holes in your mouth will grow – not to mention the hole in wallet $$!
