    “Time that patients spend past their appointment time (including that period in the exam room) will be deducted from the physician’s fee.”

    The sign should also include, “Physicians who are 30 minutes late will not receive payment!”

    Uh-oh. Horizon Dental is an actual business. Better contact your lawyers, John

    Reminds me of my childhood dentist, Dr. S. A. Dist, he didn’t believe in novocaine.

    It’s only truly fair if the patients who have to wait for more than 30 minutes are given double novocaine.

    Double novocaine works for me. I usually load up on acetomitiphen (Tylenol or store brand of such) before I go in anyway. The package says no more than 8 in a 24 hr period, I never exceed that dosage. 4 before the visit, 4 after.

    I would be afraid to Dr. SADist.

    Novacaine has not been used for decades. The discomfort as it wore off was so bad, I refused it for standard cavity work, just instructed a light touch, high speed, and plenty of water. For deeper work, I did put up with it. Current chemicals work better.
