Getting into live broadcast with Periscope

This is my first live broadcast to be shared on Periscope. Periscope is a Twitter app that lets you broadcast live as if it's a live show or football game.

I learned about it when two of the pages I follow on Facebook shared about Periscope. As a curious entrepreneur and marketer, I decided to find out more. I learned how to sign up and did. As you can see, this is one of the live broadcasts that O have made through Periscope.

If you have something to share with the world, I will encourage you to join. If you think that you don't have anything to share or are shy, I will encourage you to join by following me and some other broadcasters so that you can learn or be inspired.

See you on Periscope.

The Consultation, cry baby, I want my teeth

Taking vital signs
Thanks for following my oral surgery story. If you are just finding out about it from this post, you may want to check other articles to give you the full story.

This is the third of a four-part story I wrote about my recent experience with oral surgery. I wanted to share it hoping it may be helpful to someone else.

I must confess that it was a scary one year experience but I made it through.

Now to the third part. Read the opening paragraph below.

I thought my appointment will be to take the teeth out and be over with it. Little did I know that it was just a consultation session. I had been told to come with my insurance card, photo identification, and disc with my dental referral. I was checked in at my appointment and when I got on the dental bed, I was made to watch a video about dental surgery. The video showed the patient what to expect during such a complicated procedure. And, it was scary.

Talk to you soon.

The teeth cleaning, chopping, sharpening tools, scary experience

Now, part two of my oral surgery experience is now ready for your reading. This part of the story was not fun. Like I wrote in the article, it felt like volcanic eruption in my mouth at the end of my visit with the dental hygienist.
I hope that you will make it a point of duty to visit the dentist if you have never been to the dentist. You don't have to let pain take you to the dental clinic like me as you have already found out if you read the first part of this article entitled Dental Death Sentence.

Below is the opening paragraph.

The end of this session felt like volcanic eruption in my mouth. However, I must say that my hygienist welcomed me with a smile when I arrived at my teeth cleaning session. However, little did I know that it will be a session that will be almost an hour long. More so, it was a traumatic experience. I don’t remember if she asked me to take off my earrings, however, I asked if I could leave my sunglasses on. Luckily, I had pink eye when I went in. I was not afraid or guilty of going to the clinic with pink eye because I assumed the clinic is the safest place to go with any kind of disease or infection.

About Dental Death Sentence

The compulsory video to watch on oral surgery
The article, Dental Death Sentence is an article about my experience with oral surgery. I had just gone through the procedure about a week ago. 

I have also put it together in short pieces in other to make it a fun reading for you. Below is the opening paragraph of the first part of the article.

When I was diagnosed to have teeth and not just tooth extraction, it was like receiving a death sentence. I had gone for physical and at my appointment, I had told my doctor that I was having tooth ache. She referred me to the dental clinic. At the dental appointment, the female dentist examined my teeth and told me that one of my wisdom teeth did not grow well and that it had affected the tooth beside it. She said the only option was extraction of both teeth. Worse still, she was not competent enough to do such a complicated extraction.

You can read the rest of the article on my website http://bukolaoriola.com/2015/06/28/dental-death-sentence/

Leave your comments and question. Have you had oral surgery? What was your experience.
