Dentally Challenged (or just lazy)

Why can't I just commit to going to the dentist regularly and taking my family like a normal responsible mother? It is just one of those things on my to-do list that I keep ignoring. It's not that I don't like the dentist. I like him just fine so long as he dopes me up on that wonderful happy gas. In fact, I like everyone when I am breathing in those glorious vapors. But back to the point. Before all of you perfect dentist visiting mothers out there gasp in horror (it's too late isn't it) I assure you I will get around to taking my child to the dentist at some point. I sure better because I am paying a ridiculous amount of money for this so-called dental insurance. Apparently I get 0.0001% off of all of my dental visits for the low price of $89 a month. Don't be jealous.
So I am going to continue putting this chore off a few more weeks while my daughters teeth rot out of her head. Now if I could just talk the dentist into giving me some gas while he cleans Mia's teeth....

Oh, that gas is glorious. I went to the dentist before I left for school last semester and while on the gas I evidently called the dentist Lord Voldemort and then asked him if I could invite all my friends to partake in the gasses...all in all it was a pretty satisfying experience!

You're not so bad...I didn't take Rielyn until 6 months ago (yes, I waited until she was 5 1/2 and yes I was paing for her individual dental insurance for a full year before I took her). I hadn't been in 4 years myself! Luckily neither of us had cavitites and they said "keep up the good work"...which in my terms means we'll see you in another 5 years!

I totally relate. We get 2 checkups a year for free with our insurance, and didn't use it at all last year. I am determined to make an appointment this week!

Hey - I'm with ya. Raegan has only been for the 'fun visit'. Seeing Dr. Mike in a face mask and glasses was not her idea of fun, and has only terrified her even more. See....you're actually doing her a favor by not taking her!

I too, love me some gas! In fact, I wish I had some now!
