    I went to one who did it on purpose. Not water, air, but still. Not going there anymore.

    I love my dentist. The day he decides to retire, I’ll mourn his loss. Really good thing his sister is equally as talented!!

    Here we have another entry in the long series of “Dr. John Patterson, incompetent dentist” jokes. At least today, he has an excuse (sort of), even though the point seems to be that a John should not be operating if he has his foot in a cast and he has no assistant to cover up his bungling.

    As for me personally, I used to have a dental hygienist who regularly soaked me during cleanings. I do not see her anymore and it has nothing to do with fact she never had a dental assistant.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    Having to do dentistry single-handed is really difficult, but it happens on occasion. Four-handed dentistry is now such a way of life that only the folks who practiced before this was taught, or have worked in third world countries, can manage comfortably.

    Ahh, John has his Nancy Kerrigan moment. Why, WHY? At least the turkey didn’t deliberately plot to take him out!!!

    I love my dentist also. When he moved his practice, I followed. I know he will retire soon. Panic ,panic ,panic.

    Without a assistant, John also forgot to put the suction tube in before rinsing the mouth.

    Maybe your dentist was different, but back in the 80’s no one ever used a suction tube on me. I did it the old-fashioned way… I spit.

    If you really wanted to get back at him, you should have given him a good long huff when he stuck the little mirror in your mouth! Watching it instantly fog over would have him moaning “WHY ME!?”
