Hate going to the dentist, sensitive teeth, hate it, have hated going all my life and had an appointment today @9.30. Once that bad I had a local injection for a scale and polish. Great dentist but hates me coming because I am nervous which rubs off on him.

Just had a phone call, he has a headache, and the appointment has been cancelled. No new date arranged.

if you have read between the lines I do not like dentists!
I think I read between the lines that your dentist is suggesting find a new dentist.

I also hated dentists. Didn’t go for 10 years, they never had the time to do a proper job. But I found a good caring patient dentist. I pay an arm and a leg mind though I actually look forward to going now.

I was offered numbing just for a sore spot above one tooth for my scale and polish, but declined.

But do keep going, 10 years of not going results in a hour and a half in the chair for a deep clean and I’ll assure you, you don’t want that. Butchery.

I think it's five years since I went to the dentist now. I had the same dentist for years and years, since I was kid, going into adulthood, and he was great. Really friendly, and every check-up was just a "you're doing great, keep brushing well" etc, except the odd occasion when we'd do x-rays just for the file and stuff. Then he retired and handed the reigns over to this other woman. First check-up with her, she reckoned I needed a filling all of a sudden. I did it, but it cost £80 or something. I had no discomfort before it and felt absolutely no difference after. I just didn't trust her after that. Seemed to me like she wanted to come in and make an impact by ripping a few people off.

Anyway, I don't even live in the area where that practice is anymore, I just haven't bothered finding a new dentist. My teeth haven't caused my any problems so I've just been getting on with life really.

Spent ages designing and tweaking a crossover for my current speaker build, getting the response curve absolutely spot on... and then soldering it up and forgetting to invert the tweeter per the design schematic.
