Today half the scheduled patients did not come. In their places we fit in all sorts of the kind of emergency that happens just the week before Christmas – the teeth that have broken unexpectedly both front and back, crowns that come off at strategic moments, last minute finishing up things before insurance runs out at the end of the year, that sort of thing.
One patient ended up in the ditch and was waiting for the tow truck as they called. Can’t really blame them for not showing up.
The lengths people will go to to avoid us!
It was just sort of a weird kind of day where nothing went according to schedule.
