I got a thank you note after visiting the dentist! Who does that?! What kind of bizarro world is this? I get my teeth taken care of, and -they- mail -me- to let me know they appreciate my stopping in? Let me back up… The gum in the back of my mouth (y’know, behind the molars) had been sore for about a day, and it got worse. Brushing my teeth didn’t seem to help, nor did flossing. Eating -definitely- didn’t help… although imbibing did, somewhat. Shocking, right? Eventually, the pain got so bad after about two days of getting worse that I was having a hard time falling asleep. I don’t do well without breakfast. I -really- don’t do well when I don’t sleep. Then I started thinking… this is so not a good time for one of my last two wisdom teeth to finally be coming in. My body hates me. After running down the list of service providers on my insurance plan, I found that the Huhns were the only ones readily accessible to Downtown, and were able to squeeze me in that afternoon of the day that I called. Yes! Don’t be alarmed… the outside may not look like much, and the waiting room is, shall we say… cozy? But it just all adds to the charm of the place. I wasn’t seated for more than a few moments before Dr. Huhn walked in to see me. He may be old enough to be my grampa, but Dr. Huhn’s still got it goin’ on! I had never before in my life been to a dentist’s office where they can take an electronic X-ray of your teeth and it immediately showed up on a computer monitor! Cool! Fortunately, we determined that my wisdom teeth weren’t actually about to imminently erupt through my gums. It was just a minor infection/inflammation, likely from something sharp getting stuck between my gum and my tooth. Whew! I was handed a script for some antibiotics, and that was it – in and out in under twenty minutes. But wait. It gets better! Not wanting me to wait until I could make it to a drugstore to fill my prescription to start on my drug regimen, the doc brought out a pill of amoxocillin while one of the receptionists went to fill a cone of water (who still has those things, anyway?) for me. Another thoughtful gesture that I’ve never experienced at any other dentist’s office I’ve been to in my life. Not that I intend to need the services of a dentist in Orlando ever again, but I feel fortunate to have stumbled upon one as great as Dr. Huhn. My teeth are once again pain-free and happy. Good thing, too… ‘cuz as we’ve already covered, if I don’t eat breakfast, I am -not- a happy camper!
