What a cockup...
So I get to the dentist... sitting in the chair, everything is set...
When they said, "Okay, we're going to numb you up now," I said, "Now hang on... I thought I was getting total anesthesia for this."
Turns out -- they only do that when the oral surgeon is in the office.
I had not been advised on that.
He's not in their office on Fridays, only on Mondays.
Spiffing, since I'd still probably be in pain for two days afterwards, and not want to be on the phones, and I don't have available PTO to take to recover.
So now, after much arguing and giving them Holy Hell, I'm going to be heading for the Raynham office this afternoon to get everything done.
1. Dad has to drive me there and back. We're talking at least an hour's drive each way.
2. Nana has to watch Marcus alone for pretty much the entire afternoon. Since he doesn't take a nap very often at all there, that's going to wear thin.
3. I had hoped to be spending the afternoon in recovery mode. Now that's pushed back a few hours.
1. I'll have new teeth.
Compensation on the part of Aspen Dental:
1. They will cover the costs of the oral surgeon and the IV anesthesia. That's about $400 right there.
As I said, it's like pulling teeth...
