As Dumb As A (Dental) Post

Sometimes you just need a little perspective to make you thankful.

Reading about Coaster Punchman's dentist being inappropriate with him at the end of a visit made me feel lucky. All I get when I go is a simple exam at the start of the visit (fig. 1) and then whatever work that needs to be done.

It's good to know that your dentist is following the Hippocratic Oath of Dentistry: above all, make sure that the patient's thighs are firm and manly.

X. Dell said...

So, what does this include? Did you explain to this dentist that you don't need a pelvic examination.

Coaster Punchman's story is just plain creepy. I wondered what this dentist did to patients he had just gassed. I'm surprised he's still in business.

Does your dentist's chair have stirrups?

'Cause you might wanna look for a new dentist.

Dale said...

I don't go anywhere without my firm and manly thighs Barbara, thank you for noticing.

CP's story was a little alarming as was Old Lady's comment on his post. A friend of mine had a similar thing happen to her.

Doesn't everyone have those leg rests on the dental chairs Mob?

I knew there was a reason I don't go to the dentist...

My mother revealed to me a few years ago that my family's dentist when I was a kid regularly made inappropriate remarks to her. Makes me feel better about not going to a dentist for a 20 year period.

Dale, I thought you were the guy standing and the dentist was lying down.

BeckEye said...

I used to have such a crush on my dentist...I wish my exams would've been like that.

I'll never feel the same about flossing again.

How helpful of your dentist in helping you do your morning Calf Stretches! If mine did that I cut out going to the gym on Dentist days!

Coaster Punchman said...

I had no idea of the extent of dental problems in North America. See what a great public service we provide as a team?

Dale said...

Maybe if you wore the red shoes Giz, you'd find a nicer dentist?

It's always strange when you find things like that out Johnny Yen. I'm glad you finally made up with the dentist though.

I do whatever I need to in every situation to get the job done Tanya. Unless it involves participation of any kind.

You look hot in that little paper doiley Beckeye. Saucy.

Blogging and flossing are strange bdfellows Chancelucky.

Can calf stretches lead to fillings Freelance Cynic? I suppose they could.

What should our next cause be Coaster Punchman? And how far away from a job on Dateline are we?

Berry said...

I hear ya. Before my last dentist appointment, I said "fuck it" and didn't even bother to shave my legs.

(p.s. - I have been away from your blog for much too long, Dale!)

That's hot.

justacoolcat said...

You have to admit, I look good in a lab coat, and you didn't even know it was me.

By the way, Do you work out?

mellowlee said...

oh great. another reason to avoid the dentist ;) CP's story was great, thanks for the link!

Flannery Alden said...

Did you mean to turn me on?

Dale said...

You're a brave little Berry. As for not visiting, well, it's your own fault!

No Wonderturtle, you're hot.

I'd never have imagined your hands so soft Coolcat, do you moisturize?

Beware the labcoat Mel, it might be Justacoolcat!

This time, I did Flannery. My work here is done. Your turn.
