I used to not mind going to the dentist. Until recently. I suddenly hate it. Not only the idea of the hygenist SCRAPING my teeth, but the sound and the possible pain freaks me out. And now I have a new "hate" about the dentist. The price of a crown. Four years ago I got one for $750. This year they want $1200 (well about $700 out of pocket after insurance). How the heck can the price have sky rocketed so much!? Oh well, nothing I can do. It must be done.
