Anyone have experience with “deep cleaning” at dentist 🦷. I got a long lecture today about the health of my gums (I’m a weekly not daily flosser) and they’re insisting I do this. I’m worried about out of pocket cost / if it’s worth it. Also paranoid that dentist is trying to make up for lost revenue by suggesting it. Worth it? Get second opinion?
I'm talking with my SVP on Tuesday about possible relocation to a different state. What are some things I should ask or expect? Last year I was switching into his department and asked for a raise and he asked if it would change my mind if I didn't get a raise with the move. I feel like it was a bully move. I want to be better prepared this time so I don't get pushed around.
Curious to know if anyone who’s moved from EM/PL/AP MBB role is happy? Moved to an S&O role at Meta and I’m struggling to see much benefit other than better WLB/less pressure.

Feels like the only worthwhile move is to Product but curious to hear if G is better.

Hi ladies! I would love your advice! I got engaged this weekend and have been receiving a lot of questions regarding the date, venue, etc. I want to take a few weeks to enjoy the engagement glow and be present with my fiancé, but I am concerned because my future mother in law is already very involved (her daughter was married 2 years ago & she planned the entire wedding). I want her input, but I also want to honor my mom because she wants to help too. What tasks did you assign your MIL to help?
