Day Trip to the Dentist

Last Wednesday I went to my dentist who is in Globe AZ about 175 miles southeast of Flagstaff. It's a good little ride through the pines and off the rim down past Lake Roosevelt.

Temps have been above normal recently, leaving Flagstaff southeast on Lake Mary Rd with my ridding buddy following.












Mormon Lake








Controlled Burn on Lake Mary Rd.




Dropping off the rim down to Strawberry & Pine AZ.




Lake Roosevelt - Temps over 100








Pulling into Globe we get to the dentist. Why do I ride 175 miles to the dentist - because the dentist is my dad. At 77 he still practices three days a week in this small town of 30K with only 3 dentists. He has built and sold about 5 dental practices in his career. This one should be the last. It's a one chair practice with his residence in the back. I think it's pretty cool!

His place is in the back attached to the commercial building and there is also a one bedroom apartment he rents out.







My dad enjoys gardening and seems pretty successful with it.







After a little garden tour it time for a drink.








It was very good!




Then it was my time in the chair to be prepped for a bridge. The office is simple with a small reception area, one dental chair and a large office with a back door the leads onto his front porch.




Back on the road through the heat and up the hill.

That would be a pleasant visit to the dentist. Your dad must be a very special person.

Nice Spot

Your dad has a great layout. I wish my retirement had produced something as special. Congrats on a nice day. Bitch'n bikes too! Ron
