Buffetting : Hitting the Dental.
The last time I checked, I had never had an appointment with any dentist outside school. You know Malaysian government have this dental service thing for students up to standard 6, and its like you're-on-your-own after you step into secondary school?
Well, lucky for me, there was a free check up when I was in Form 4, and jolly that lady dentist scared the heck out of me about my dental health.
And after all the years being afraid of the painful drilling screeches and gushing liquid in the mouth, I've finally came to consensus that I need a cavity filled, pronto.
Dr Yap was cool, steady and also fun! He's not like the funny type, but he keeps his patient occupied with questions and interactions.
The drilling wasn't as painful as I've pictured them during showers(thanks goodness!), guess the other pains I've went through did a miraculous job on increasing my tolerance against pain, taalk about being MAN-ned up.
3 cavities, 20 minutes and Viola~ I'm good as new, with strong teeth! The only minus to this awesomeness is the yellow shadings for gourd-know reasons. Maybe I should get a whitening session or something...
when I have the $$$, and when I start dating then. Which probably around like, 10 years from now.
The fun part comes in when my sis started her session.
2 dead teeth. 4 cavities to be filled. 2 obstructing wisdom teeth. Owh yea, what about braces?
It felt so adult to be able to commune with the dentist with all the terms and conditions, even more when my sis suddenly just kept quiet as I dealt with the issues. I was expecting her to go all Elder-Sister like though.
Guess she is finally accepting the fact that I'm going to face all these soon as a med student, and she will need to confide in my when it comes to health problems.
Owh well, I have a long way to go don't I?*question pointing to Medie, Savante and and all docs out there*
Overall, thumbs up to Dr Yap. Great session, good hands, not to mention no consultation charges for 3 cavities of mine. Dental filling came up to rm180, but its worth the money, I think.
Sorry about the rally post delay, I need to compose my mind before I can go full blast on the night.
