Hedberg: Dental Visits Pure Anguish

There are certain words that can be spoken to make all the difference between whether a person goes just for the basic health care procedures or opts for the Hollywood blow-out version of self-improvement. Those words are: "Your insurance won't cover it."You have to give people credit who go ahead with the boob jobs, the facelifts and the collagen implants when they have to pay for it out of their own pockets. It means looking good and being popular really is important, which is what I have always believed. Sure, having a nice personality and a stimulating intellect might win you friends and admirers, but if you really want to make it in life, kid, you need to look hot. For me it involved a relatively minor dental procedure. I say "minor" ironically, because what's minor for many people is major anguish for me/Kathy Hedberg, Lewiston Tribune. More here.

Question: Do you fear going to the dentist?
