Dodging a Bullet

To See the Whole Video, Go To - Dodging a Bullet Below is a transcription of this video – I am recording this video inside a commitment to record 3,000 videos in the next 90 days. I just hit a pretty interesting milestone. The second video I recorded I looked at my teeth, which is funny because before I did this, it was very difficult. I don’t think I am a shy person but I couldn’t look at myself in the eye when I was recording these videos and the second video, I realized I was kind of embarrassed by my teeth. I wasn’t embarrassed by how they looked but embarrassed because of the fact I haven’t been taking care of them.


I hadn’t been to the dentist in over seven years and I guess as I am sharing this I hear that other people can relate to it. So what I did was take my daughter to the dentist last week as a step forward to get her first cleaning. Her first cleaning came back clean so I booked an appointment for myself and I just got on the other side of it. I lost a tooth about a year ago and that is how bad it was. I knew I had to do something with that and I have one more cavity in the wisdom teeth area and that was it. He said everything else was clean. He didn’t necessarily commend me for not going in for seven years, but everything else came back as a clean report so we will call this one dodging a bullet. The cool thing is just kind of taking the action I was afraid of. Within five minutes, he said there is no major concern, no gum disease, nothing to really be concerned about. I was very relieved by that. I just wanted to share that so if you have been tracking my teeth videos I’ve still got some more work to do. It was a major hurdle but it feels good to be on the other side of it.
