She was even excited to get her radiograph taken. Lil girl, lil girl, u don't know what's waiting for you in the next few weeks. Unfortunately she has 4 teeth need to be filled. That means FOUR unpleasant injections on all 4 quadrants of your mouth (Upper Left, Upper Right, Lower Left, Lower Right) I can say, it's gonna be a rather uncomfortable experience for both me the dentist and the kid. *shrugs* Let's just hope for the best!
She came in all smiles like this..
But she might end up looking like this later T__T
Earlier this morning I had a really old guy for my patient. He is in his late seventies and aside from some heart condition, he's a rather fit man. He dresses really nice too.
I kinda reminded myself from the day before that I had to force my English accent out. YES my spoken English is not that good. Since I'm dealing with a very old man I had to tell myself to speak clearly. You see, it takes a lot of effort to speak English properly. I always got my tongue either tied or twisted. LOL.My least favourite word would be STERILIZATION / STERILIZING. My tongue feels like falling out everytime I need to say those freaking words. I have to be fully energize to speak a good English. The man praised me saying my English is good. Dah kena puji teros kembang, lepas tu terus speaking lintang pukang resulting in me repeating myself twice as he can't really understand what I was saying. Haha. #stupidgirlpantangdipuji
Whichh bring me to my next point - if we speak without a good accent they won't understand. Seriously, like if you go and carry on with the way you speak Manglish with your patient, it's gonna be quite hard to communicate. So don't blame the so-called budak oversea balik berlagak cakap cam omputih. Haha, tapi saya tak rasa lah saya balik cakap English ada accent. My tongue is heavily "nourished" with belacan, cilipadi and what not that it can't get used to any other accent anymore.
Okay now there you go. How I spent a day treating 2 person of 2 extreme ages. One my youngest patient and another my oldest patient I ever had so far. Another boring stories about me treating patient, yes? I hope someday I could find something to blog that is not related to them. For the time being, you would just need to deal with my EXCITEMENT on meeting all those people. Heheh..
