I look forward to my bi-annual dentist office visits. I really do. I know a lot of people don’t, but I do. I’m not sure why dentists get such a bad rap. I guess it’s the possibility of pain, because most people’s gut reaction is fear.
But I’m not afraid, and I have an added reason to be. You see, my dentist is Jim Jones. Can you believe that??
But of course it’s not this Jim Jones:
It’s the Ocean Beach Jim Jones: James W. Jones, III, DDS.
I have to admit I was a bit leery the first time I went to his office. Just what is in that Dixie spit cup anyway?
There was no grape Kool-aid to be found.
But there was the typical photo session.
I'll admit that I don’t love the chalky cardboard insert being shoved into one side of my mouth then the other, but I do enjoy the solid weight of the x-ray protection apron, and I love the x-ray itself.
Don't teeth look so badass and skinny? So primal?
So no poison, cool photos, and clean teeth, what’s not to like? You don’t even have to clean them yourself. I mean, really, having someone else clean and floss your teeth? What is more self-indulgent than that?
I would get it done bi-monthly if I were a movie star.
