 My dental vent of this week.

I hate it when patients come in and ask "where do I sit?"

Really!? You're at the dentist. What chair do you THINK you sit in!

lol I had this guy be a COMPLETE jerk to me today because I just assumed he would know to sit down in the ONLY dental chair in the room. When he asked (rudely) and realized that yes, sit down, he told me "Well, you didn't elaborate on what you wanted me to do?" and when I told him the doctor would be with him in a minute he said "Don't worry, I'll be waiting RIGHT HERE where you TOLD me to sit."

Ugh, seriously people. Go to the dentist, sit in the chair, get teeth work, leave.

How hard is that to figure out? lol

Any other vents?

I have had a dentist where we'd sit in the chairs and discuss stuff before we got down to the exam, soo I could see that, but if there's only one chair, and the dentist chair.. yeah its kinda obvious. hehe

It's kinda like when they ask "do I pay here?" As they stand under the sign that says "pay here" and happens to be where the cash register is.

 I know right! I thought it would be pretty self explanatory but apparently not.

SO many patients ask me this question and I want to strangle them with the bib lol

You certainly won't be sitting in my assistant chair ...or the doctor's chair ...hope that helps to narrow it down a bit! lol

Maybe they are nervous. Sometimes when I am nervous I say stupid stuff

 hahaha I might have to do that next time. See what they do.

At least my boss might have a sense of humor over something like that lol

We had one mom of a patient sit in my assistant chair and actually told me to find a different chair to sit in lol Ah, some people amaze me.
