One Less Reason to Avoid the Dentist

你又少了一个躲避牙医的理由


You know something has gone wrong when a dentist is staring into your mouth with a mixture of shock and bemusement. Keep in mind he wasn’t my primary dentist, either. This was one of his two colleagues he asked his nurse to fetch. Apparently, my mouth was quite a horror story his colleagues had to see to believe.


“Yup,” the guy peering into my mouth said, “This one’s a doozy!” He turned back to the guy actually performing my surgery. “You’re going to write a paper about this later, right?”


Such is the bedside manner of American military health care providers. This was a long time ago, when I was on Christmas vacation from college, and I had gone back to England to visit my parents. On Christmas morning, I woke up and couldn’t move my face. I could barely open my mouth. Long story short, I had a severely abscessed tooth that led to massive swelling. Fixing it required a root canal from hell. Another dentist once read my case file and managed to pause between fits of laughter to apologize. “I’m not laughing at you,” he said. “It’s just I have never seen or read anything like this before!”


Many people develop unique reasons why they put off going to the dentist. The above scenario made me delay getting a wisdom tooth removed for years. Then, the reasons changed. I blamed the poor state of my mouth on being an adjunct college writing instructor, not having dental or medical benefits, and not being able to afford a simple cleaning and check up. Then, I moved to China and cited the language barrier as why I couldn’t go. That excuse is probably one of the more common ones expats use – that and the inability to find a good dentist. In Changzhou, that reasoning doesn’t work anymore.


Modern Dental has capable staff that can speak English, and they have a highly skilled dentist with excellent English. Sometimes, navigating hospitals requires tasking a Chinese friend to come with you to translate. I know of this first hand; back in 2014, I contracted laryngitis and had to make multiple visits to a hospital in Wujin. It’s always good to know, however, that sometimes you don’t have to bother Chinese friends for assistance. Modern Dental offers that exact convenience while maintaining high standards of service.


Currently, they have two offices in Changzhou. The easiest to locate might be the one in the Jiuzhou New World Plaza in Tianning. It’s on the fourth floor, and that mall is easily accessible by several BRT busses like the B1, B16, and B11. The other office may be a little harder to locate. It’s on Yulong Road in Zhonglou. That is walking distance from the downtown Injoy Plaza, but it’s on a back street that runs parallel to Yanling. The Youdian Phone Markets are also nearby. A check up and a cleaning costs 525 RMB.


As for me, up until recently, I have been avoiding the dentist for 10+ years. You could imagine the dread and apprehension I felt while waiting to get into the chair. I had imagined and feared that my mouth was filled with scandals that could become fodder for academic literature. Turns out, nothing was wrong. I just needed a very thorough cleaning. Since this is me we are talking about, I’ll likely just find something new to become intensely neurotic about. Give me time.


当一个牙医盯着你的嘴巴露出震惊又疑惑的表情时,你就知道事情不太妙了。虽然他并不是我的主治医生,只是被主治医生的护士叫来的同事而已。很显然,我嘴巴里的情形对于这个同事来说像是不可思议的恐怖故事。


“好吧”,这家伙盯着我的嘴巴说,“这真是可怕。”他转过身对那个要给我动手术的家伙说道:“你可以就此案例写篇论文了,对不对?”


这就是美军军事医护人员的态度。这件事发生在很久以前,那时候学校放圣诞假,我回英国探望父母。在圣诞节早上,我醒来后就发现我的脸不能动了,甚***说不了话。简单来讲,就是我的牙床脓肿而导致胀痛,修复它大概需要一根来自地狱的根管吧。另一位牙医曾经在看过我的病历档案后,不得不尽力克制住笑声并向我道歉。“我并不是嘲笑你”,他解释道:“我只是从没有看过,或听说过这样的案例。”


很多人拖延着不想看牙医,对此他们都有自己独特的理由。就拿我来讲,上面的情况让我多年以来都没有勇气做智齿拔除手术,后来,这个理由又变了。我把这归咎于我作为一个兼职的大学写作讲师,没有牙科或医疗福利,也负担不起简单的清洁和检查费用。后来,我搬到了中国,语言障碍成为了我推迟手术的理由。外国人常常使用这样的借口——我找不到一个好牙医。但是在常州,这样的借口是行不通的。


现代口腔有会讲英语的专职员工,并且医院里还有讲流利英语的***牙医。在中国,我进医院的时候,有时候需要有中国朋友的陪同翻译。我是对此有亲身经历的。在2014年时我得了喉炎,不得不多次到武进的一家医院就诊。所以,现在我终于可以不用麻烦中国朋友陪同了,这是多好一件事。现代口腔在保持高水准服务的同时提供了很多便利。


目前,现代口腔在常州有两家诊所。比较好找的一家开在天宁区的九洲新世界广场四楼,乘坐B1、B16和B11路公交车很快就能到;另一家门诊相对没那么好找,它在钟楼区的玉隆路上,从市中心的生活广场步行可以到达。它位于一条与延陵路平行的小街上,邮电路手机市场就在它附近。现代口腔检查和洗牙的费用为525元人民币。


对于我来说,到现在为止,我已经躲牙医躲了十多年了,你可以想像当我坐在椅子上时有多么恐惧。我曾惊恐地想像,关于我嘴巴的丑闻可能会成为某些学术文献的素材,但其实这并没有什么大不了的,我只需要好好对牙齿做个清洁就行了。这就是我的故事,如果再给我点时间,我很可能还能告诉你一些原本令人生畏的新尝试。
