I hope U all are enjoying the mayhem& Masti of this monthParty

 In this thread we will show acknowledgement and also partake in a discussion of the week and the Reason
 Well today March 6th is Dentist's day! 

 dentist's day is a day to display a big, toothy smile

After all, Ur dentist plays a role in that big, bright smile. He/She is an important person in keeping ur  your teeth and mouth healthy!!!


 So lets acknowledge those men and women
responsible 4 keeping our teeth and gums healthy!
so that we may proudly smile hence giving us a new lease on life!

Okay now moving on to the topic 

Are we afraid? or why are  some afraid of visiting the dentist?

 If A Dentist is such an important person,
then why are some so afraid  of the next dental visit ?
or afraid of the dentist in general?

 Why we have dental phobia/Anxiety...?
Rather be excuted than be faced with a dentist?

 Is it perhaps the fear of discovering a cavity?
Maybe, they will find the beginnings of gum disease? 
 Maybe the fear of having a tooth pulled?
Are U afraid of needles , the sound of the drill, used in some procedures?
Or  just anxious  to have someone take a look at ur mouth?
Tasks in this thread
Task 1
In this thread tell us some of ur experiences?
tell us if they are bad or good?
hillarious or serious ?
share with us reasons why one(anyone) might be scared, anxious,
or have a phobia going to the dentist?

Task 2
 Take time out and acknowledge them by posting a message in the thread!!!

Among the ways to honor them today are: Party

    Giving your dentist a big "Thank You"
    Sending your dentist an Ecard
    Making a dental appointment(if you haven't been there in a while)

Okay let me share something here. Somehow the word Dental in itself brings me the memory of the incident. Here's it....

Once upon a time there was a lady. LOL Too scared of injections. One day she was going somewhere in her car when a friendof her on Bike saw her and called her without stoping - Didi Where???

She also decided not to stop and shouted back .....ental Check up.

Now the friend could not make out correctly what was said. He heard it Mental Check Up. Ouch He got really worried. Took his bike and straight away reached her hubby's office and told him "See better get into action. Didi seems to be in some touble. She told me she has gone for Mental Check Up."

Now the person got really worired. He took the bike and went at top speed to the hospital. Looked everywhere in the psychiatry dept. but could not find his wife anywhere. The doctors there went on asking him "But why will she come here" LOL

Then he decided to go to the OPD and inquire. There he got the correct info that his wife is actually in the Dental Dept. Tongue

And till this day whenever I hear the word Dental I get reminded of the incident. And mind you this is a true story.... LOL LOL

Okay now another one.....

I know a person who is waiting for some terms to be met by the dentist only then she is ready to get her tooth taken out.

She went to the dentist, the dentist told her that she needs to get the tooth out. Now what was her reply...

"Doctor tell me... you will give me injection in the gums right?? So I hope you will give a local anesthesia in the gums before giving that injection"

And she is still waiting for past 20+ years for such a Dentist and carrying that Million dollar Tooth with her Tongue
