Dental Music

Last week I was at my new dentist’s office for my first visit. As I sat down in the waiting room my ears perk up to the music being piped in. It was none other than Roots Radicals by Rancid. I had to stifle my laughing because it was just such an odd song to hear at a family dental practice. I mean, people like their punk rawk, but it was just kind of surreal. During the course of my visit people obviously couldn’t make up their minds because it would change to country then top 40 then soft rock then 80’s hits then pop. The peak of the musical journey was Simon and Garfunkel performing on the TV on some morning program while my teeth were being cleaned. Despite all the musical choices that was by far the best dental hygiene visit I’ve ever had. If anyone needs a dentist in the Bay Area (probably easier for East Bay residents) then don’t hesitate to let Dr. Martenson know that I sent you. If you should desire more opinions just come by the Whitney House and ask since most of us use Dr. Martenson.
