Today I went to get my teeth cleaned, which was somewhat worrisome, but ended up being pretty safe. My dentist’s office does a temperature screening, gives hand sanitizer, requires masks in the waiting room, and enforces social distancing as well. It was good to see.

Then, right before I sat down in the dentist chair, I rinsed with a peroxide wash, and for the blood pressure test, they put a plastic sleeve around my wrist. The dentist and hygienists all wore full-body gowns, masks, face shields, glasses, and special gloves. I think it was pretty safe, and I felt comfortable.

It was good to get a taste of normalcy again, even if it was with extra precautions. I feel like this is probably the way we’ll have to operate for a while until a vaccine can be developed. I don’t see COVID-19 going away on its own, sadly.

Today’s photo is of a cute little bottle of Aji-no-moto, or “Aji”. It’s MSG if you are wondering. Yum!
