I got my teeth cleaned today for free at the school’s dental clinic. I also got them polished and they feel so smooth and they are so shiny……or maybe it is all in my head. In any case I:
- Don’t have cavities! Hurray!!!!
- Got complimented by the dentists on my good oral health.
- Got a free toothbrush.
- Got free dental floss and a handheld flosser!
- Got sealants put in
- Got free toothpaste.
What does this have to do with saving money you ask? Well I got all this free stuff that I would have had to spend money on….so there!
No cavities means no trip to the dentist.
Free sealants means the small holes that could have developed into problem areas later.
On the downside….all that money I saved just earned me a parking ticket. GRRRRRRRRR!
Apparently students can’t park in the dental patient spots if they are currently enrolled. I am having it appealed and I hope the ticket is forgiven because if I have to pay $20.00 for a ticket then that is $20.00 not saved.
If I could see the appeals committee then I planned on showing them my healthy, shiny teeth…maybe that would help.
Any way, I am going home in 5 minutes to have lunch and then brush my teeth with my new toothbrush!!!!!!
To the bat cave!
