31 Days of Gratitude: Day 12

Day 12:  Grateful for My Dentist

No one likes going to the dentist, but my dentist, Dr. Robert Levine, makes it tolerable. They are always on time, squeeze me in for emergencies (broke a tooth this week), and make it as pain free as possible. The dentist takes forever to administer Novocain, meaning it takes maybe a full minute to inject the stuff. By taking this long, the shot doesn't hurt. Why don't all dentists do this???

Dr. Levine also took care of my mom so I got to know the place quite well! They were very kind to her as she aged and that made it easier for me. Very sweet of the staff to send a sympathy card to me when she died. Speaking of the staff, they are all very nice and easy to deal with.

As my mom used to say, What more do you want?

gratitude to you for prompting me to think about the dentists, doctors, nurses, and other caregivers in my life - especially the last 5 months - out of all these that i have encountered, i only had one that was really not very kind and maybe she was just having a bad day.

There are so many things to be grateful for, and thank you for reminding me that I'm grateful for my considerate and gentle dentist as well. I hardly ever have anything more than a cleaning, but I go twice a year and he does it himself. Knows all my sensitive spots and is very careful with them. Very sweet staff, too.
