I'm with you schmange. My dentist is always trying to get me to buy crap that, by some crazy coincidence, isn't covered by insurance
. :eek: The poor man. I guess he needs the money from the braces I don't need (and don't have, because I don't fall for his game) to fill up his Lexus. Or maybe it's for his Porsche. No, I am not kidding. This guy works in Teulon, the smallest you can get and still be called a town. So this guy has two $50, 000 dollar cars, something's up. I went through years of "appliances" because I had an "underbite", then because I had an "overbite", now my teeth are "crooked", then he wants to do surgery to cut up my jaw, the list goes on. He says in a few years he'll have to take skin from somewhere and put it over a tooth that apparently doesn't have enough? All he wants is money, nothing else. I know it sounds like I have the most messed up mouth in the world, but really there's nothing wrong with it. One time he had a "specialist" do a "biopsy" to take out something that was growing in the back of my mouth that he thought could be cancerous. It was a tooth. 100% serious, folks. Stay away from dentists.
You go outside and practice screaming. We'll play music while you're gone.
