[IP] Re: Dentally Challenged?

All the teeth I have are my own (72 / 61 yrs T1). Truthfully, I'd rather 
visit the gyno than the dentist. I panic when I can't breathe and can't lie 
back. I had a wonderful dentist (25 yrs) who worked with me until he changed 
drivers and an RV came along and almost ripped his left arm off. The last 
time I saw him after his recovery, he said the time before he was *sick* for 
3 days and couldn't handle me any more. We both cried and I'm too afraid to 
search again. My bad!
