The dentist should know you have the pacer but newer ones are well shielded and they don't cause problems at the dentist.

Your dentist will likely require a release from your cardiologist/EP before they'll touch your mouth but it's just a formality (lawyers may be hiding in the woodwork).

You know you're wired when...

You have a dymo-powered bike.

I have had my pacer since 2005. At first it ruled my life. It took some time to calm down and make the mental adjustment. I had trouble sleeping and I worried a lot about pulling wires. Now I just live my life as I wish.
