Even though it hasn't been good to me...I'm going with my gut on this one....

I've talked about it before....I am a HUGE baby when it comes to dentists. And...haven't always had the best luck. I had a really tricky root canal...that required me to see a specialist....
Fast forward five years later...I'm living in MG...and the ENTIRE tooth falls out...

I had to get it put back in (here), and then anxiously waited to get back to Canada and everything checked out. The short story of it all - I'll be back in April to for a visit to my Canadian dentist to get some work done.

The Canadian dentist also told me that if my tooth fell out again, that I should go to an MG dentist and get it cleaned up so that I wouldn't be at risk for any infection. (Okay - no more details on dental work....I know some of you may already be getting queasy....or...at least I am...)
Surprise, surprise...the tooth fell out. And...the dentist I originally went to last rotation - is gone (WHAT is with everything being gone this rotation???? Internet and cable in the compound, litchis (they were in season when I left), the good drivers....urgh!!). So I went to the second dentist on the "recommended" list...

It...wasn't as nice as the first one.

And...my gut kept telling me....not to stay. This dentist's office was so sketchy that my driver got out of the car and walked in with me and was prepared to sit with me. I told him I would be okay and to wait in the car..

So...I sat there...in the waiting room....for... a full twenty minutes...and wanted to get the HELL out of there. But...that's generally my gut feeling in any dentist's office...so...I tried to reason with it...(is it weird that I'm having a conversation with my gut?? Never mind...don't answer that...). But my attempts at reasoning wouldn't do any good.... So....I gave in....and....decided to bolt. I went outside to "take a call"....got in the car, left, and will not be coming back. (The good news is I'll be in a first world country in less than three weeks....Here's hoping that my tooth (or missing tooth) can stay nice for me until then.)

The view from the outside....not too bad....(also...these aren't pictures from the new SLR...I don't carry that one around with me all day).

Very....welcoming???

Going underground. With my driver there to protect me....

This is as far as I got with the picture taking...I was scared to have my camera out in the open....that I might get mugged or something in the dentist's office....

I think I'm glad I listened to my gut. Maybe...it will be sooo happy that it will start being more nice to me while I'm in MG.... (here's hoping... )

(And...is it just a coincidence...that...the month before I turn 30 I start losing my teeth? This thought bothers me.... :P)
