Register at a Dentist

Registering at a dentist is something that I’ve put off since moving to Bristol four years ago. Last time I went to the dentistIMG_1172 I was registered at in Trowbridge, the dentist was that mean to me, he made me cry. No joke. That combined with years of painful braces made me more than a little scared to actually head out there and register at a dentist. Adding the registering and going to my 3o before 30 really was the kick up the arse I needed, and within less than a week of registering at East Street Dental Surgery, I found myself sat in the dentist chair with shaky hands while the dentist examined my teeth. Minutes later I discovered after years of putting the trip off, all I needed was a quick clean behind my bottom teeth (I have a wire left over from my braces in an attempt to keep my teeth straight) and I would be sent on my way.

A few painful moments that I winced my way through and £18.80 later, I was sent on my way and told they would see me in 6 months time for another check up. Thank God that was over! My teeth still hurt for days after, but at least I faced my fear and went; Liam even went a few days later and it was even longer since he had been!

Register at a dentist and actually go

I actually tried to cheat on this item and just have ‘register at a dentist’, but the boyfriend caught me out an made me add ‘and actually go’. I know registering at a dentist is a very odd thing to have on a list, but I absolutely hate going to the dentist. I don’t know if it’s from the pain (literally) of having braces, or the fact that last time I went to the dentist back in Trowbridge, he made me cry (yes he was that mean). Needless to say, I’ve not exactly gone running back. Now I know I need to actually man up (excuse the term) and actually go – although I’m dreading the bill on this one as so far I have avoided fillings (good going at 29!)
