First Dental Experience in US

My top wisdom tooth was broken 2 weeks ago, actually right after I had that wonderful pizza. A small piece of it fell off. Then the sharp edge at the broken place had been bothering me until this morning.

I found a list of dentists on AETNA(the insurance company) website, then picked a close one based on reviews on Yelp. On Tuesday I called them and made an appointment on Thursday.

The treatment experience was better than I expected. I got the broken wisdom tooth extracted, then took a teeth cleaning. I had been worrying if it would be super expensive or the doctor/hygienist would be inexperienced. It turned out those worries were nonsense. They have very good manners and skills. No pain at all when the doctor took out the tooth. And the cost is just about 60$ (teeth cleaning covered by insurance).
