    Hello, Just wanted to share that I'm absolutely dreading the dentist tomorrow! I know my breath smells horrible, as my nearest and dearest keep reminding me! Apart from frantic teeth brushing and mouthwash, anyone got any other ideas!?!? :eek:

    Chew parsley?

    I definitely wouldn't worry about the dentist - easier said than done, I know, but I'd imagine they've had way worse. Many people go to the dentist when they have a bad tooth, they smell worse (just! granted) than Atkins breath :)

    It'll be fine. Chew some gum on your way there. I was at the dentist last monday - they have a plastic visor covering their face these days anyway, so yer golden! ;)

    Good point re plastic thing. Expect my kids playing havoc will be enough of a distraction too! Bet dentists approve of Atkins anyway, it must be quite tooth friendly! Cheers guys....

    It went fine thanks. The visor covered almost his entire face, it was a new dentist I'd not seen before and he barely spoke english so I think he thought I was a crazy woman when I tried to excuse myself. Oh well!
