All in all, perfectly pleasant. What a difference from the little shop of horrors I experienced a little over a year ago in India. And while it wasn’t as thorough as my dentist in the States, at 33 bucks I can’t really complain. Thinking back on it, I believe the cleaning in India was something on the order of 14 dollars, so i guess in some sense you do get what you pay for. I thought it was kind of funny that my dentist today went out of his way (before we began) to go into great detail about his sterilization procedures with regard to the equipment. He then explained to me that many of the other offices here are substandard, reusing tips and having somewhat questionable cleaning practices, but not him, he is by the book spotless.
