Who loves the Dentist? I didn't! Every visit was a Guiltfest on how I wasn't meeting the minimum oral hygiene standard, When I decided to go into Dental Hygiene, a bizarre choice, I knew I could make the patient experience better by not adhering to shaming process, A process that isn 't effective anyway I Come see me and learn how to be healt hier on a guilt free format.
