i was under anesthetic & severe discomfort i didn't know what she was saying...could she not have a list printed out for her patients of do's & don't?? after such a common procedure, seems a very basic thing to do

it was just a passing comment on my part and wasn't done in an aggressive way by any means, but she got very uppity about it

Yes yes she did..... The op says they were out of it but I find that very hard to understand as I've had no feelings like that....

She did, he said he was too out of it to take the details in.

You'd assume she'd have that alright. I remember the dentist gave my wife such a list after she had her molars out.

I was there though to deal with the list, talk to the dentist and bring her home.

Next time you go under anaesthetic, make sure you have someone with you to help and bring you home. It's just good practice.

Apparently she did, op said he/she wasn’t quite with it. Most extractions heal without complication but some do develop dry socket which is an unpredictable condition. The instructions are pretty basic, don’t smoke/drink alcohol/keep it clean etc, and even with that, dry socket can happen.

Op, a dentist is not obligated to begin a new course of treatment for you, particularly if there has been a break down in the relationship. Every clinician has patients they would like to move on, this has happened to you. There are other dentists, just start again with another one. You are better off, I doubt anyone wants to be treated by a dentist/Doctor/physio etc who doesn’t like them.

Dealing with the public is by no means pleasant and until you do most don't realise what's involved . People are awkward and you probably were awkward op . It's her choice whos mouth she has to gawlk into and she can bar who she wants . Move on with your life and stop lodging pointless complaints !

You should apologise to the dentist for your outburst and see if she'll agree to have you back then.

Under a drill or syringe being held by someone who doesn't want me. Yikes.

I urge the op to watch the movie 'The Marathon Man'.

Oh FFS. No. Just no. You don't need to be hand held. If someone told you something, they've done due diligence. Literally thousands of patients manage to follow instruction each month. It's not their fault you didn't

I honestly don't see what grounds you have to complain.

Yes, but for leading you on. I don't think you'll get anywhere for refusing you.

I had a major extraction by a specialist a couple of years back. Problem was my own dentist was worried that my roots were so deep that he might not have been able to get them all out.

Anyway the specialist went through all the possible problems and what I needed to know and got me to sign that I understood what could possible go wrong BEFORE knocking me out. When I came round he checked I was OK and gave me WRITTEN instructions on how to proceed.

By all means complain, but as the dentist is under no obligation to give you an appointment, I’m not sure it makes a difference.

Receptionists bare the brunt of dealing with the public, they get really pissed off taking abuse from patients demanding appointments at times that suit, complaining about being kept waiting, complaining about prices, complaining about how they have been treated etc, it’s a tough job and few stay long term.
