    My husband found a dentist by taking advantage of an ad the dentist had put on the Safeway supermarket receipt. K liked the dentist well enough so I let him persuade me to go, despite my shakes. I'm glad I did as that dentist did some work in my mouth that's left it happy for a few years now. Sadly, That Dentist had to move away. He sold his practice to another dentist who was kind of chilly and a little arrogant, but going along seemed easier than hunting up someone new. Then husband blew up at new dentist and I knew I couldn't go back either.

    So with the help of yelp and the Berkeley Parents' Network I read up on dentists nearby and took myself to the nearest - all the reviews I found were positive - and I think this will work out. Yay!

    My make-me-happy medication was an iPod shuffle. "I Eat Cannibals" has been going thru my head ever since.

      I had a dentist who apparently messed up and who then disappeared. I did what you did - went to the internet and think I did well - just as you did. I even filled out all that patient info online. Saves a lot of time when you go in for the 1st visit.

      There are two dentists in the practice - one from Columbia, one from Venezuela. Having lived in Mexico and in Venezuela,
      I thought we'd be simpatico - and we are.

      My stumbling block right now is the expense including the surgery before restoration can be done. My age and health complicate things medically. I'm just feeling overwhelmed -
      the surgeon's office called a while ago and I had to tell them I'd call them when I'm calmer.
