Bronwyn, South Philly/ Lower Moyamensing
“I’ve been here for just over four and a half years (I’m originally from New York City) and I didn’t expect to love Philadelphia as much as I do, but my neighborhood could do with less liter.”
“It was fun, but a bit awkward. Good distraction from from having to finish writing my short story assignment due Wednesday though!…It’s ‘adorkable,’ could use some work.”
I actually like my dentist.
Weird I know, but she’s pretty cool.
Her office doesn’t smell like a usual dentist’s office, but that’s because I have a rare allergy, and her staff does a major cleanup before I get there so I don’t die in the chair.
She’s very professional, very caring, super friendly, and because she doesn’t take my health insurance, very expensive.
If my dentist closed up shop, I’d have a hard time finding a suitable replacement, believe me I tried.
I just saw my dentist about 45 minutes ago, I figured I’d sit in the park, reading a book, waiting for the 30 minute time limit to be able to drink and eat again after the fluoride varnish-the bubble gum flavor is not tasty, but at least it doesn’t kill me.
While I love my dentist, and she’s the first one I’ve liked in 20 years, if she could accept my insurance, that would be swell.
It’s important to take care of your dental health. I’ve had braces three times b/c I kept losing my retainer, I had periodontitis b/c I spent my 20s not flossing, but after a lot of money and time I finally have a clean bill of oral health.
Find a good dentist kids, and take care of your teeth. You’ll miss them when they’re gone ( fortunately, I still have all of mine).
