    Every 6 months or so at the moment because work pays for it so I keep regular appointments. I had my wisdom teeth taken out last year after many years of pain because I couldn't afford to go.

    I think dental work is FAR too expensive and inaccessible to those with not much money. In my younger years I should have gone many times but just couldn't afford it and couldn't get assistance to go. Makes me wonder how many kids over the age of 9 or 10 (after the age limit for free dental work) suffer bad teeth because their parents can't afford to have work done for them.

    A lot of military people say one of the 'perks' of being enlisted is the free dental!

    I hate the dentist. But I go once a year, unless I have anything that needs checking, cause I know I should.

    They reckon my wisdom teeth should come out but they are not causing my any pain right now and I'm too freaked out so I have been putting it off. Guess I'll have to toughen up & do it eventually........

    So tonight I joined PHI for $22 a month with only a 2 month wait list on general dental. Yay!
