(A trip to the dentist - a long long long time ago I had some unpleasant dental experiences, which put me off dentistry, I went last year and this year I felt the need to go get my concerns eased, so here is a short poem as the feelings arose, maybe if your scared too it will help put your mind at rest)
Knowledge Is Power
So I visited the dentist today,
It was a scary realisation that came my way,
She was thorough and helped me understand,
Knowledge is my power to give my teeth a helping hand.
She said there was bone loss,
Which I admit freaked me out,
Something I can't get back but I can do something about,
Prevention and attention is what is needed,
So this time I went beyond my fear and her advice I heeded.
So next week is my trip to the dental hygienist,
She's going to give me some tips on keeping them the cleanest,
To put my wellbeing in someone elses hands,
Is something I must trust as source within me understands.
Knowledge is power,
And even though i'm scared,
I am glad that I went and I am glad that I cared.
