I was at the Dentist this morning. Since I have got somehow decent teeth meeting the Dentist is normally not painful, nor do I need to stay long for treatments.
It is the same Dentist as the last, I don't know, maybe 20 years (remember I am 24 :)). He is close to retirement now, but I think he will continue the ordination until his son finishes his Dentist study.
Since I had braces while I was a kid and a teenager and with a break of a couple of years as an adult I visited him pretty often. Sometimes even weekly.
You get to know the staff there and they get to know you. Even though you probably can't talk a lot, you hear interesting things from their lives, if you want or not. :)
Today was again a quick visit. Three of the retainer-holding points where loose, so they where cemented again. After that, a little bit of calculus was removed.
After maybe 30 minutes I was finished and now, hours later I am sitting here telling you about my visit in the morning, trying to get my 200 words done. I don't know why it is so hard for me these days to get them done. I will observe that further.
