Double Booked: Dental Care VS Physiotherapy
[ Friday November 18th 2016 at 10:34 pm ]

I was just entering my upcoming physiotherapy appointments into my calender. I've discovered I am double booked.

  • My dental care is extremely important. Medication I was prescribed for my Legg Perthes disease has made me susceptible to cavities. With my use of chronic pain medication I can't feel if I have a cavity. It is why I use a high fluoride toothpaste at bed time and an electric toothbrush.
  • My physiotherapy check up needs to happen that date. This is in the hopes of progressing my exercises. I've actually been given 2 patients time slots because I am requiring specialized care.

It is easier to rebook the dental than my physiotherapy. That is the decision I've made. I've e-mailed my dentist secretary. I explained the situation and asked for a new date.
