One of my coworkers had his appointment right after mine (I think he was afraid to go alone lol-we rode together from work to the dentist). The dentist assistant had to clean up my chair because she had another appt after me, so I ended up doing the suction for the coworker while Lida cleaned his teeth. In 5 short weeks I have gone from terrified of Lida to assisting her. I find that really hilarious.
Final tally: 11 fillings, 1 potential future root canal, and a future eviction notice for the wisdom teeth.
