If you live in Korea long enough, at some point you just might need to go to the dentist. For some of us, it could be for a medical reason and for others it could be something as simple as a teeth cleaning or whitening. I've been to the dentist three times here in Korea. The first was for a regular check up to see if I had any cavities, and yes, I did. *Sadface* The second visit was for a teeth cleaning and the last time was because of a more unfortunate reason. The crown to my root canal came off, pulling off some extra parts that needed to be fixed.
