Make Me Smile


I feared the worst.

My last dental check up, scheduled for six months ago, was canceled because of the current situation.

My dentist called last week to reschedule, and Thursday was the day.

The office looked the same, but different.  It was always spotless, but there were new clear dividers everywhere.  It was just a wave from the dentist, rather than the customary handshake.  The staff, friendly and professional, as always.  We made our small talk from beneath masks.

So, after being away for a year, how did I do?  There were no issues.  No cavaties.  Some old fillings still solid as a rock.  Crowns are where they should be.  Nothing broke in the last year.


See you in six months.

I hope we can shake hands next time.
