For the last couple of days, I have had a tooth bothering me. Today I had an appointment with Dr. Miriam Rodriguez at her clinic, Dental Esthetic. I feared the worst. I am one of those patients that really needs to see a dentist three times a year.
It turns out that I had an inflammation due to my poor flossing. In her most persuasive voice, Dr. Miriam said, “Por favor, señor Don, Usa hilo dental mejor.”. Hilo is floss in Spanish. I have learned that by having multiple visits with Dr. Miriam. 🙂
I will try to do better.
Dr. Miriam did a complete teeth cleaning with special treatment to the affected area. She applied antibiotics and a protective packing that she will remove Friday.
Finding this dental clinic may be the best find I have had in David. You can pay less, and I have in Panama, but I also received care equal to the price. I have paid more in Panama and a lot more in the US and still haven’t received as good of care as I have received from this clinic.
If you want the best care for your teeth in David, I can’t give any higher recommendation. Just be prepared to hear the word “hilo” and remember to floss every day. You don’t have to floss all of your teeth. Just the ones you want to keep.
As always, if you see Dr. Miriam, tell her you learned about her on Chiriquí Chatter.
