Bet you didn’t see this post coming….
Actually, it is of utmost importance. In order to be able to eat well and enjoy the process of eating, would it not be vital that you maintain a healthy set of pearly whites? Yesterday was my bi-annual dental check up. Yes boss, I didn’t skive off early to go for a job interview. I really went to see the dentist.
Going to the dentist isn’t exactly an enjoyable thing. I always feel such rush of relief when no cavities are found and the dentist can go ahead to polish my teeth. There was a period of time when I hadn’t visited the dentist for more than 2 years. It was pretty scary when I finally did go. Luckily all was fine. I realise that as long as I make the visits often enough, say twice a year, there would be nothing to worry about. I’m assuming a cavity takes time to develop??
Anyway, St Andrew’s is on my company’s list of approved dental clinics. A colleague recommended me this place and I’ve been going back since. I haven’t been to all that many dental clinics, but I quite like St Andrews. The clinic is nice, clean and comfortable. There is a waiting area with comfy chairs and lots of magazines to keep your mind off the impending check-up. There is a coffee machine although I don’t think you’ll be wanting that just before you bare your teeth to the dentist. There is a fish tank with colourful corals, if you need help calming down.
St Andrew’s recently moved from the 3rd floor of Amara Shopping Centre to the 11th floor of Amara Corporate Tower. So there is also a view to enjoy now. I like looking out at the Icon Condominium, one of my favourite condos. When I grow up, I’m going to get an apartment there.
St Andrew’s Dental Surgeons is a dental practice where there are numerous dentists with numerous consultation rooms, ie it’s not a one-man show. I won’t comment on the dentists here as I don’t think that would be appropriate. Suffice to say that I don’t see a need to change dentists or dental clinics for now.
Lots of travel and car magazines

View of The Pinnacle @ Duxton from my dental chair. Check out the sunglasses on the table. That’s so that the bright lights don’t stun your eyes when you’re having your teeth yanked out.
While waiting for my dentist, I got off the dental chair to snap a picture of the Amara Hotel Pool. Quite nice huh.
Reception area. The lift opens directly into the dental clinic.
