I go immediately

Most of us abhore going to the dentist
that whining little drill...is worste than a mosquito...
the smell of "burning" theeth as the dentist drills an even bigger hole to stop up the old one...worste than a diesel truck idling in traffic...

So, how long do you take before you face your fears and go see the dentist?

I have no fear of the dentist. I like getting free toothpaste and toothbrushes, and sitting in the chair is calming for me.
