Hey, it's ironic because when I was about 6 years old, I went to the dentist to get a check up. It didn't hurt as much. Then I stopped going and got this really huge cavity. I was terrified of ever going there because of all their tools and stuff and I was scared of the pain and I watched too many movies on them. So for 7 years, I was in terror and kept thinking that nobody must ever find out. I just kept avoiding visits until my mom forced me to go. I screamed of course and they had to drag me out of the house just to bring me to the clinic. I got surgery while I was awake. After that, I also got braces for 3 and a 1/2 years. Now I have straight teeth and no more cavities. Going for dental check-ups are not a big deal anymore. After I got my braces out, I actually considered my major as a "Dentist", but I don't have the patience to go to school that long so I chose Nursing instead.
