Date: 18 May 2016. Relief at a Dental Clinic.
Bravery is displayed many
different ways. Soldiers are brave when facing an enemy on the
battlefield. Explorers charting unknown territory during inclement
weather are brave. Going to sea is considered brave by some. For me,
none of those things scare me as much as having to visit a dentist.
Just the other week I had to visit
one. I tried waiting, hoping the tooth would stop hurting. It
didn't. Finally I was miserable enough to walk the final mile into
the gallows otherwise known as the St. Petersburg Dental Center.
Andrea suggested I take a seat and
wait. I was quaking too much to move anyway so did as she suggested.
They take your picture which is not nice at all. Feeling like a
warmed over bowl of mush, I had my photograph taken. Lovely. Just
Finally this beautiful sweet young thing came and lead me back to
the death chamber. I was seated in an electric chair. That I was
willing to go tells you how much pain I was in.
Next the beautiful girl started discussing my
problem teeth. She was the dentist!
Meet my dentist Danielle Guerrino and her assistant
With three teeth removed I was numb and ready to
escape. Finally I had relief and knew I'd be able to sleep at night.
Believe me when I say after the half century mark beauty sleep is a
necessity for happiness.
Before leaving I stopped at the office to pay the
bill. This is a clinic so prices are more modest than at a private
I paid Brionna and Andrea, then escaped with my smile
intact, relatively speaking!
They are great gals, very friendly and accommodating.
I have discovered two things:
Doctors are getting younger and younger.
We should get a new set of teeth when we are fifty, not at five
or six years old. They'd be much more useful now than they were
If I ever need to visit a dentist again I'll look
for Dr. Guerrino. She's great. By the next day the pain was entirely
gone and life was again good.
Of course life is always great on
Do you have a phobia about doctors or dentists?
If you're not afraid, what does scare you?
