I use a mobile dentist, where they come to my home to provide the services.

Several years ago, I had a problem with a back tooth. The dentist they sent out said it needed to be pulled, but since the tooth went so deep in the jaw, he couldn't do it. It would have to be done in the hospital. Since the tooth wasn't causing me pain, I let it go.

On the next visit, they sent out a different dentist. Much younger than the first. He looked at that tooth and said, "No problem". I hesitantly scheduled the extraction. When he came for that appointment, he wasn't there longer than 20 minutes or so. Went without a hitch. Some pain and bleeding for a few days, but totally expected. He later put an implant there.

He's been the one they've sent out for the last two years, but this year I'm told he's no longer with them.

I wish I had him back.
