Dating like a dentist

We learned to say, “when can I see you again?” so we schedule appointments for patients. It’s just like dating, said our professor. Right, but it may be a year before you see that cutie again if you date like a dentist.

Today’s New York Times article suggests that annual dental exams may be enough- not every six months as previously suggested. In the same issue though is another article on the dangers of oral cancer, especially in heterosexual middle-aged men. I found this ironic because dentists are trained to look for and recognize signs of oral cancer in the mouth- six month recalls may not be necessary for teeth decay, gingivitis or periodontitis, but what about oral cancer?

And if you haven’t seen this, 15 reasons to date a dentist including 6. Free check-up’s and immediate access to emergency dental care- right, because we carry our high-speed drills with us at all times…

  1. Follow-ups are definitely important! People always have different ideas for next steps so never hurts to be explicit. With men, not as sure, but I'll think about it now (translating things I've learned on the job to dating). :)

    1. Don't leave them hanging!- Or if you are about to be left hanging, ask them to be explicit? It's like that "see you later!" thing.
