Dentists, love them? hate them?

Last time I saw a dentist it was 1989, sounds like a long time ago to me. So since I am permanent and have benefits I may as well use them. I’m a big baby when it comes to pain and needles so I wasn’t looking forward to this. Last time I even got close to something like this was when I got my wisdom teeth extracted (notice I use that word and not removed, sounds more painful). They had to give me nitrous oxide (laughing gas) before they even got close with a needle.

So this time, I wasn’t looking forward to how my teeth were after 18 odd years. But I was plesantly suprised to find my teeth are in pretty good shape. No cavities, but they wanted me back for a cleaning. It took over an hour just to check, x-ray and head inspection.

So nervous again, back in the chair, but the cleaning went really well. They said my teeth are really in good shape and barely needed much cleaning.

Neato eh? I’m happy, teeth happy and even got some gas on the way, but next time I’ll go gas free.

June Happenings

Well one canoe trip down, hope to plan some more. Thinking about going down from Sunshine to Kakabeka, maybe we can daytrip it and get some rapids experience for those that need it.

Went down to Duluth for a bit, saw the Movie Waitress, my choice this time, and I really liked it. Stayed at a nice place and relaxed, although the weather was a bit wierd.

Planning a trip to Nova Scotia in August, so will have to stop in and visit Andrew/Jen and their new daughter, plus all my relatives there. Also planning on stopping in at Montreal and I hope to hit old Quebec City as I haven’t been there in eons.

Dragonboat is coming up, anyone want to sponsor me? Work is going mostly well, although the future of application development in our shop is questionable so doing some applying around the province right now. Think that’s it for now.

You can find me on Flickr, Facebook and Digg!
