My Dentist

Sure it’s easy to say you hate dentists. Nobody likes them. They drill holes in your teeth. They’re total assholes. But mine is a particular type of asshole and let me tell you why. Because he doesn’t speak to me. Instead, he relays information by talking to his hygienist, Margaret, while I’m in the room. “Looks like this fella hasn't been flossing as much as we asked him to, hey Margaret? I think he may have lost that floss we gave him. Hmmm, you'd think he’d want to keep his teeth his whole life. Sure would look pretty silly without them.” Margaret nods her head and says stuff like “looks that way,” but I don’t blame her. She’s just trying to earn a paycheck. I think she hates him too. All I can do is focus on the wise advice from the cat hanging from the tree limb in the poster on the ceiling and hang in there.

  1. Hmm, haven't you thought of changing a dentist? Not all of them (us)) are so bad, really!)

  2. It is better to visit dentist regularly rather than any emergency. I am new in hermosa and it is very complicated task for looking an experienced dentist.

  3. When it comes to finding the right dentist knowing some introductory information about different fields of dentistry is very important.

  4. Doctors in mental hospitals do this too. "Yeah she's obviously depressed with a medical jargon co-morbid buzzword disorder." The nurse nods and smiles and pats your shoulder, telling you that it'll be all okay and that, yes, cigarettes are currency here too, just like in prison. Then they hand you a cup full of drugs and it's all flowers and yellow submarines for the next week and a half.

  5. Hmmm, maybe he's either timid by nature, or just too busy with work. Either way, silence doesn't mean he didn't do his job well. Have you transferred to another dentist?

  6. Not all dentists behave that way. Others befriend their patients and even treat them as part of the family. Perhaps he was just busy with something else during your check-up.

  8. Hmm, that's not a good character for a dentist. A good dentist talks to his clients to get the patient's trust and cooperation. Have you found a new dentist?

  9. A good and qualified dentist along with his team and other specialists should be able to provide a comprehensive and complete dental care for the individual and the entire family.

    1. Hey Dirk Erving, you're every bit as boring as your name implies. I bid you good day.
