And another six-monthly visit to the dentist. For the first time, at their new premises.

(A couple of years ago, the proprietor of a local side street butcher went AWOL. After about a year, the actual owner of the premises decided enough was enough, and went looking for a new tenant. Planning permission for a dental practice was pretty much a formality. Of course, a fair bit of work was involved in the modifications.)

Parking was easy - the street comprises long residential terraces, with a post office near the station end, but otherwise just housing. The cars parked there at night are mostly not there during the day.

I was in the chair for all of five minutes, so got out early, despite the dentist not actually arriving at the surgery until a couple of minutes after my appointment was supposed to start. I note that of the three listed dentists, mine is, I think, Greek Cypriot (qualified at the Karolinska, yet), a second one is probably an Egyptian woman (judging by name and look - definitely a woman) and the third has a Chinese name.

Coincidentally, I went to the dentist yesterday. Just a polish ;)

He (Dr Theodore) was very complimentary about my teeth. Definitely brushing them properly (and an electric certainly helps) does make visits very easy.

Oh, good genes also help. My father has (or had) indestructible teeth. Of my sisters, one has very good teeth, the other has rotten problems and, despite her best efforts, has got a pair of fakes in her upper jaw.

I need to get into the habit of using mouthwash, now I've found one I don't hate the taste of.

That's in Cambridge, or elsewhere?

Histon. Not the most logical for me, but at least easy to get to if I can work from home and drive there.

Huh, the odontological department seems to have been merged back in to KI. Back in the days, it was an independent school.
