Dec 17th 14.30-15.30
I ride my bike so fast to go to the dentist in Gongguan (a place near my campus, wellknown with the night market). This happened because I still have Jaepong dance practice at student building, so the interval time is just 10 minutes, push me to be in a hurry. I have made appointment with the doctor, her name is ‘Melati’, beautiful name as same as the person. She has a fluent english, can told me about my teeth condition clearly, and working fast 🙂 . She do the cleaning in 10-15 minutes. Awesome! Although I have to wait for 30 minutes actually before the treatment. There is a queue before me. Haha, so what for Iam in a rush? ^^fyuuhhh
So here the detail of my treatment :
1. Teeth xray (I go to 2nd floor)
2. Wait a moment (I reading the clinic brochures)
Some brochures in Chinese, but 2-3 of them in English. I can see that everytime I go to the dentist, I always see this brand.. Oral-B ^_^ (my usefull toothpaste)
3. My name is called, I go to the treatment room.
Actually it is not a room, because everyone can see me. It doesn’t have a door or window. It behind the resepsionist and beside the stairs.
4. I see my teeth xray photo in a flat television.
The doctor told me about the treatment that I need to do in the near future. Its a bad news. I have to let go my 2 teeth because it has no functions, grow longer and will hurt me in the next day. Iam so sad, I already lost my 6 teeths when I had ortodonti treatment 2 years ago. 😦
5. I do a mouthwash with blue liquid.
6. Teeth checking.
There are some holes, a small one. The assistant give me a little mirror then the doctor show me the place which need next treatment and I can see it by myself. I think this way is good, which I never find it in my country before. So I can make sure whether I already feel uncomfortable about the certain tooth or not.
7. Cleaning time !!
In Indonesian, it is called ‘bersih karang’, free translation in english is ‘coral cleaning’. Usually, in my hometown, it will be a kind of special treatment and need a high fee. I have tried some different places for doing this, from university clinic (the cheapest Rp 20rb), dentist, and special dentist (the most expensive Rp 300rb). I called it ‘special’ because i can watch Cartoon Network when they do the treatment. So they successfully distract my attention ^^ Besides, they have assistant, no need to do mouthwash every minute (because they use waterpipe suction), very fast process, the most important : pain no more ( the doctor is very precise). FYI, some place do the ‘to be continued’ treatment, for example, this day just for your below teeth, next time for the above teeth. Well I dont fell convenient with that.
So.. how about this one? Well with my national health insurance card, with 150 NTD= Rp 45rb, I get the ‘special’ dentist treatment ^O^, but not for the Cartoon Network 😦 . They put a clothe in my face with one hole in my mouth. It is to prevent the water make me get wet. As you know, the dentist use tool like a drill to clean the coral, but it also spray cold water to minimize the pain.
Finally, the treatment is finish 🙂 well, I feel a little pain, bleeding for sure, but Iam okay with that (weird….. ^^)
Before Iam leaving, The assistant show me how to brush my teeth in a right way.
Not Bad service 🙂 It is recommended ^_^
ps : thank you to Finie Winata who recommend this place & help for the appointment making
