Letter from dentist part 2

About a month ago I visited my dentist to get a required letter stating that my teeth were in “good condition.” He noted in the letter that I had some “minor tooth decay,” aka, a couple cavities. To my defense, not having any insurance made it too easy for me to procrastinate getting the dreaded fillings.

My OSO told me that OCS expects you to arrive in perfect physical condition, and this includes your teeth. They say cavities aren’t usually a problem, but more serious issues are a ticket home.

Not wanting to take a chance, I decided to suck it up and go back to the dentist and get my cavities filled. It wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought it would be. My teeth are now in “stable” condition.
