Like pulling teeth

I had an appointment with the dentist today. I got there and filled out the forms and they took me to this little room, and the dentist chair was just laying on the floor, with no stand. Like some kind of ebay prize. So I sit there and read their selection of 7 month old SI and look around at the little 5-year old computer that the tech is doing scheduling in _in the damned examination room_ (which was connected to the tooth-drilling room without any door). I sat their for a fucking HOUR listening to the one dentist pulling this woman's teeth; she moaned like they were gang-raping her or something. The tech laughed and told her she sounded like she was giving birth. After an hour and a half of that, and having a tech come in and ask me if I wanted to take a nap on the floor while waiting for the dentist, I got up and walked out. (but not before rescheduling of course)

This is my new motivation to not eat candy.

An excellent dentist I can recommend to you is Dr. Hirt in Clear Lake on Bay Area Blvd. Yes, it's a drive. But GOOD dentists who give a crap about their patients and will try to work around schedules with you are hard to find.

I'll consider it, but Clear Lake is pretty far away. I wanted to find a place that was close enough to not miss much work for.

If you are looking on the Island Dr. Parker at 1508 23rd street 765-6023. That is my dentist and I think he is great. I have never had a problem and his work seems to be done well.

My wife prefers Dr. Krumholz 3314 Ave O 762.4522. I dont know much about him except for anecdotal stories but I havent heard a bad thing about him.

Another dentist I would go to (just because I know him from Dog Owning) Dr Riley in Dr. Krumholz's office.

my choice list would run:

Hopefully one of these three will help. Dentists are doctors that I am VERY particular about and they are all here on the Island.

Good Luck.
