Working at home today, and just about to leave the house for a visit to the dentist. She’s very nice, as are all the staff, but it still irks me that I’m paying to have pain inflicted.
We signed up to “go private” just before all the nonsense started and I’m quite smug that I’ve not had to queue for hours to be able to attend the dentist practise (why DO they call it that!) that I want. Up until last year, our monthly payment covered checkups, hygienist appointments, x-rays and minor fillings.
They changed it this year to exclude minor fillings.
Guess what I need done.
Of course it is entirely possible that I’m just being cynical, but there is a part of me that wonders why this wasn’t caught before now. It’s a replacement filling, after all, as an old one has started ‘leaking’ and surely it was doing that last year too…
Trust is, of course, hard to earn but my dentist has always been very good, and I shouldn’t start to doubt her now but there is always a part of me that wonders. After all, they could be making up pretty much anything… at least if I visit the doctor with a sore ankle I have an idea of what has gone wrong..
Anyway, best get dressed. They weren’t best please the last time I turned up in my PJs.
Probably because the fly was open…
