Me when given a $2700 dental bill this afternoon ...
Kids, just because you are in college and away from the day to day scrutiny of your parents doesn't mean that you no longer have to visit the dentist.
And then when you finally grow up -- or you become engaged to be married and want a pretty smile for your wedding photos -- resuming your normal six month cleanings does not erase the years of soda, sugary candy and ignoring professional dental care.
Because eventually those fillings that you had to have after you went back to the dentist break down. And that is when you find yourself on the wrong side of 35 and looking at a $2700 dental bill.
Just save yourself the headache and brush and floss now. And don't miss a checkup.
