Is it just me, or is the dentist's chair the worst place to sit? I guess it all depends on your childhood experiences. My daughter loves to go. But she had a great dentist and received a prize out of the prize chest every time she went. I, on the other hand had a dentist who should have retired in 1970 and didn't use novocaine. And I had a number of cavities as a kid. It wasn't until I was in my early 20s I received my first shot to get a cavity filled.
