Open wide.....

Made my first trip to the dentist here in Taiwan. On the whole, not a bad experience, had one filling done. Best of all was the price - $1200NT for the white kind of filling (I cannot think of the proper name right now), not one of the ugly silver ones. Oh, and X-rays, too. Sheesh, that's only $36 US! Unbelievable, isn't it? You can't even get your teeth cleaned for that little in the States. Hell, not even when you have insurance!

I had asked my friend Guoxi to recommend a dentist, and this is where he goes. As I was chatting with the dentist about my passion for Wu Bai & China Blue, I discovered that this is also the same dentist that Dino, the drummer, goes to! Cool.

Going back next Wednesday for the cleaning, how fun.

I have a bunch of those white fillings, but mine didn't come at the bargain basement price. I heard health care is cheap in Taiwan, but I had no idea it was this good. :)
