In which I talk about my dental hygiene…

A month or so ago I saw my dentist for my 6-month cleaning. After he cleaned my teeth, he told me he was concerned that my gums were bleeding too much and referred me to a local periodontist.

I had my consult with the periodontist this morning. After he finished looking at my teeth, I asked if it looked bad.

He said, “Not in the least. All you have is a little gum recession, probably from brushing too hard.”

I was relieved.

Then he said, “You’re a periodontist’s dream girl.”

And my relief changed to confusion. I'm their dream girl?!?

Are periodontists not allowed to watch Project Runway?
