Today I had my teeth checked and cleaned.
Since 1972 I've gone to Broadway Station Dental Centre, at the corner of Broadway and Commercial. My Mom worked at Scotia Bank back in 1955, which was located across the street where Blenz coffee shop now is. She needed a dentist so she began to visit Dr. Mikelson, who had his practice where Dr. Cheevers took over after he retired. It certainly doesn't FEEL like 40 years I've been having my teeth lovingly cared for by Dr. Cheevers! He's done a great job, and today I asked to have a picture taken with him. His office assistant, Maureen, is on the left.
Dr. Cheevers has always made me feel comfortable with the many woes of my odd teeth. I have chalky teeth which needed many fillings over the years, even though I took care of them so carefully. Then around 24 years ago one of my teeth broke, and I learned all about root canals and crowns! Thanks to Dr. Cheevers, I have 13 crowns in my mouth. Some of them are gold, and the newer ones are a beautiful white porcelain. I just love my dentist!
This is the office. The door is just past the wooden sign on the ground.
I love the painting on the side!
The list of dentists when you enter the ground floor door.
To the right of the sign is a flight of stairs; to the left is an elevator.
My Mom never ever took the elevator when she brought me here for my dentist visits.
We always took the stairs!
At the top of the stairs stretches a long corridor.
Dr. Cheevers and staff are behind that far end door.
It always seemed to take forever to reach it when I was a child.
Tee hee...Dr. Cheevers is Irish and loves to celebrate.
This is the sight I always welcomed after a grueling visit of pain.
Dr. Cheevers has also removed 3 of my wisdom teeth, one by one. The last one was impacted and had to be dealt with by surgery, by a specialist. I always loved to race down these stairs and into the fresh air. It's amazing that I've come here for 40 years, now going on 41. I'm blessed to have had such a great dentist! Thank you, Dr. Cheevers!
