It is not always a great workday at the office.
Most patients don't like to be on a dental chair for restorative work.
This week, I got an unpleasant patient. He was not interested in having a conversation with me.
He was talking nicely to the dentist. After giving the anaesthetic, the doctor left the room asking me to place the rubber dam.
He was making my job very difficult by closing the mouth. To make me miserable, the dam tore when I was stretching it over his teeth.
When I try to place a new sheet, he snapped " you call the dentist". I went to the dentist and told her "I can't place it". then the doctor came and done that.
He was very cooperative with the dentist.
I wanted to blame this as the patient not being comfortable in a dental office setting. I wanted to blame dental phobia. I wanted to blame myself for tearing the dental dam.....
I wanted to overcome the bad feelings and let them go too.
