As a dentist, can I just say that we ARE trained in some aspects of dermatology etc and therefore have every right to recommend a patient to see another medical professional

Yeah... That's what's important in life. There is not NEARLY enough politically correctness in life. We need our professionals that are hired to keep us healthy to keep their comments to themselves. Especially when the comment may be bad.

He has every right to say whatever the fuck he wants. Don't tell people what the can, and cannot do. OP obviously had something wrong, so being a good person, he said that she should probably go see a specialist. You're stupid.... Just throwing that in there too, I noticed I didn't add that at the top.

dentist doesnt just look at teeth but they look at the whole oral cavity where its prone to have cancer or diabetes in pregrenant women. so the dentist has the right to tell.

29- a dentist's job is to clean TEETH and not tell their patients to see a dermatologist. OPs dentist isn't getting paid to point out her/his flaws and embarass them. If their acne was that bad that it needed to be pointed out, then OP probably knew they had skin issues. Being a dentist doesn't give one the excuse to act like an ass and give them unnecessary advice on a completely different topic.

Torva, he has a right to say things but won't he even consider it isn't any of his business to comment on ops face? If he could notice ops acne then op probably does too... Maybe it won't go away either way no one should say that to you unless they are a close friend or family member....it's called being considerate of peoples' feelings

NO- our job is to look after the patient- as I said above, we are trained in other aspects- and as I say all the time to my patients- it's their own job to clean their teeth- we deal more in prevention and patching up cavities

Washing your face DOES NOT always help the situation. In fact, if OP is washing their face too much that could be half the problem. The acne could be stress related.

Unless OP has Rosacea which can look like acne but it's not, and is worsened by harsh facial cleansers, exfoliants and acne treatments. Many face rashes look like acne but aren't, like the classic (and quite serious) Lupus rash, malar rash, dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema. Even cystic acne doesn't resolve with washing alone. Jerk.

RussianFox - So we're not allowed to comment on comments anymore? No one informed me that the rules had changed! Or maybe you should follow your own personal commenting rule - if you DON'T like a comment, just thumb it down and move on and don't act like a dick.

"Like" the comment. Never did I was say to never comment. Actually never mind considering the amount of people that kiss the ground Doc stands on, I won't win this.
