Today, I went to the dentist to get a cavity filled. As the dentist was drilling, he accidentally hit a nerve and I ended up screaming in pain. The whole office heard me and now I'm too embarrassed to go back. FML

Frankly a dentist that inflicted that much pain is not a good dentist. I suggest going to a different dentist.

I suspect the staff have heard worse. It’s a dentist; nobody likes going to the dentist. Every dentist I’ve met has been some level of Exceedingly Weird to even consider dentistry, so I don’t think he himself would judge you either. That said I agree with Chazzster that a dentist that would accidentally hit a nerve while drilling probably isn’t that good a dentist and this is as good an excuse as any to switch if you’re going to.

You’re not the first person to scream at a dentist office, and won’t be the last.
