I was overdue for a dental check-up and feeling guilty about it when I got a coupon in the mail from a dentist's office.
It offered new patients a free exam with X-rays. For $84, I could get a cleaning at the same time.
Having moved to St. Petersburg for graduate school, I lacked both a dentist and dental insurance. So I booked it.
It was a well-equipped office, with a flat screen TV on the wall so I could see inside my own mouth.
