Everyone I know hates going to the doctor, but I unfortunately had to go in to get a cavity filled last year, and I wanted to take care of it before it turned into a root canal.
- I showed up to the office and settled in the waiting room, replying to texts, when I noticed that it was feeling extra hot in the building.
I asked the receptionist if she could turn down the a/c and she told me it was broken, and they were awaiting Heating and A/C repair, frustrated, I went back to my seat and tried to ignore the heat, however shortly after, they called my name and I walked to the back so that the assistant could see me and get me started on my procedure. I thought I could ignore how hot it was, but I was already so nervous just being at the dentist. When I finally got to the chair I realized that I was about to endure the most uncomfortable dentist visit in my life, so I told the doctor that I was sorry, but I could not be treated in this condition. I waited a week and called them back, however when I asked if their a/c was fixed, the receptionist told me that it was still broken. Knowing that I needed to handle my dental work ASAP, I called another doctor to schedule an appointment. While on the phone, I made sure to verify that the a/c was working correctly in this office, and the guy on the phone assured me that they had a working commercial HVAC system. While the filling wasn’t pleasant, I absolutely had a better experience at the dentist under a powerful a/c.
