When I called my dentist a couple weeks ago to make my semi-annual appointment for a cleaning, the receptionist told me that he retired. "Il a cessé ses activités et a pris sa retraite." The receptionist was still there because she works for my now former dentist's wife, who does children's teeth. It's funny that there was no mailing to regular customers informing them of his retirement. Oh well.
So I went into town where I knew there was another dentist's office (right off the main square in St.-Aignan) and walked in and asked for an appointment. The receptionist set me up and my appointment is today. I'm a bit nervous about a having to go to someone new; I've only changed dentists once in the last twenty years and that was when I moved to France.
So, we'll see how it goes.
