I've been going to the same dentist for 16 years now. For the most part, I see him twice a year for a check-up and teeth cleaning. He's a no frills sort of dentist. The appointment starts with a few x-rays, done by him, followed by a bit of looking around at my teeth, also done by him. He also takes care of the teeth cleaning.
I'm happy to say that I haven't had to hear the high-pitched whirr of the drill in quite a few years. Dr. H was happy to tell me it had been some seven years since I'd had a filling. He went on to tell me that my teeth should continue to do well, no need to worry about cracked bicuspids and crowns for another ten years or so.
Good to know.
