A Funny Thing

Recommended Posts

I receive Dental benefits from my VAMC.

I ALWAYS use a Bite Block at dental appointments

(that are not just a cleaning).

During my last VAMC Dental appointment, they did not have my size

Bite Block available.

On Oct 1st, I have another Dental appointment.

Last night I went on ebay and ordered myself a set of 3

Dental Bite Blocks, there is a small medium and large.

The total charge (free shipping) was $19.90.

It is scheduled to be delivered prior to my Oct 1st appointment.

Moral of this particular story . . .

If they don't have the tools needed to do the job - I'll bring my own : - )

You should not have to do that.

I agree - BUT - I am doing it to ensure my dental appointment is optimum.

Without the Dental Bite Block, doing a 1 1/2 hour procedure, my jaw starts having

spasms and shaking pretty much uncontrollable.

I will bring it back home with me.

Pete - to be honest - I am so glad I am getting Dental care now and they are treating

me great . . . but I still want all the right tools :-)
