Dental scaling

I went for a general dental appointment today. Ow. It’s right up there as my most efficient but painful dental appointment. Walked in without an appointment, filled out my name/ARC number/address/phone number, and signed. ┬áSat for about 5 minutes, and then got called in, someone went at me with dental equipment, and I paid.

It would have cost 60,000 won out of pocket. But with my Korean national health insurance, it ended up costing me 24,000 won. Which is pricier than the 15,000 I was told to expect. Hm.┬áNext time, I’ll try out a different dentist. I don’t even know when I can go for my next subsidized cleaning.
