DENTAL CARE – Who’s Afraid To Go?Written by By Vickie J. Scanlon
When is a good time to introduce your child to a dentist? I would strongly suggest that you introduce your children to a dentist before they had any problems with their teeth. You want them to start out with a positive experience – thus, lessening possibility of any dentist phobias. Go ahead and laugh – I’m one of those people who developed an early fear of dentists.
My First Experience
I was very young, and one of my baby teeth became abscessed – not a pleasant feeling. Anyway, it was my father’s duty to take me to dentist. In dentist office, I was told to swish some strong, green liquid in my mouth and spit it out. I was to do that until all liquid in glass was gone – then go back to dentist chair and sit down.
I, being obedient child, did as I was told. I swished and spit, and once done, climbed into dentist chair. I did not have a clue of what was going to happen next, until of course, dentist told me to open my mouth and began to pull my tooth out. Low and behold, green liquid I had swished in my mouth was antiseptic! Well, surprise, surprise – it didn’t work!
With my father holding me down in chair, I felt every pain, heard every grinding sound – and experience remained alive and strong in my memory—a memory that followed me throughout my childhood and into adulthood.
After that experience, my love for dentist and very sound of a drill would put me into a panic. No matter how I rationalized it, no matter how much I told myself how stupid I was for feeling fear – it would not go away.
Why buy stock house plans vs. custom? - Part IIWritten by Mark Mathis
Stock house plans are, by contrast, home designs which have been developed to fit needs of a particular group of general populace. They are not custom designed for a particular person, but rather, standardized for needs of a larger group.
Stock homeplans normally include "most requested" features including square footage, room dimensions, floorplan layout, amenities, and other like features. These house plans provide an excellent value when compared to corresponding price of a set of fully custom house plans which may exceed several thousand dollars.
When you buy a stock house plan, you're not paying for countless hours spent drawing up a plan, re-working plan, and finalizing drafts. You're paying a reduced fee for a single re-use of that plan.
- Significantly less expensive - Minor plan modifications can usually be made by original designer or a local designer for a minimal charge. - Very simple and quick purchase process - Can submit plans for a building permit day after receiving
-Not as extensively customizable
