A Letter To My Dentist,
Having just escaped from your dentist chair for the second time in a week, I am writing while the experience is still painfully fresh in my mind. Actually, the pain wasn’t nearly as bad as I expected – the drugs helped a lot.
As you know, Doc, I have hearing loss, and you’ve always been good about removing your mask when asked to repeat something. But I’m wondering if I might suggest a few other areas of your clinical service that could use some accessibility upgrades? And this isn’t just about me – you probably have many other hard of hearing clients, although not all would have disclosed this choice bit of personal info.
