Fairchild, please tell me how old you are! Because when I was 15-16, dido!!!! Except I couldn't stop myself from almost hyperventelating, and the dentist had my breath in a paper sack, and he referred me to an endodontic specialist to take care of my root canal. They wanted to knock me out for a root canal (yeah right!) and they were very rude and cussed at me. However, I moved back to Iowa from Arizona, and the dentist I saw wasn't too nice, either, but he did give me the shadow of the doubt (fainted at pano-x-ray, how embarrising) and he gave me laughing gas, and it solved yesterdays problems for me sitting in that chair! We got it done, but don't see him anymore. Now I think I was given a very caring dentist in Cedar Rapids area of Iowa. I have to get my lower wisdom teeth removed before too long. Anyways, I just joined this site, so feel free to post again, and I'll make an effort when I'm on next to reply!!!!
