  2. I’m a stranger person who loves going to the dentist! but dreaming that I was worried I was going to be late for my dentist appointment (a few weeks after I’ve just been) that’s a strange one even for me?!

    Hi there. I usually don’t do this but.. I dreamt that someone came to me while sitting in a dentist chair and very abruptly rubbed something around inside my mouth. Then suddenly walked away. I started to feel those parts of my mouth go numb and panicked, since I wasn’t informed of what was happening. I started calling for help, best as I could. Someone came over and placed a salty chip in my mouth. I started chewing the chip then realized I would have rather gotten the work done while my mouth was clean. Lol overall very strange. I understand the communication and trust element that you’ve spoken on.. but am interested in any further meaning you can gather.. Thanks.
