Today, I was treating a patient at the hospital where I'm a dentist. This particular gentleman was old and slightly deaf. After completing the procedure I gestured to the spitoon and asked him to spit. He got up, steadied himself, and spat straight in my face. FML

Most likely on purpose. See, back in 'nam the Vietcong would torture p.o.w.s performing "maintenance" on their pearly whites. Maybe sitting in a chair with metal instruments jogged his memory slightly and he spitting on his tormentor was reflexive. Or he just didn't understand directions.

The dentist only "tortures" you if you don't take proper care of your teeth. It shouldn't hurt, and if it does, it means you need to floss and brush more. I hate when people complain about their dentist or hygienist hurting them, when it's easily avoided by just flossing.

54 - that's not always the case. genetics plays a huge part. My dad had full dentures by the time he was 30, and mom had dentures at 37. I brush 4 to 5 times a day and floss at least once a day, and I've had $20,000 worth of dental work. 16 root canals, 19 crowns, and every time I go to the dentist, they find more cavities....I also have issues with novacaine, and it tends to wear off in the middle of the procedure.

Just because it doesn't hurt YOU to go to the dentist, doesn't mean that it's a pleasurable experience for everyone else.

That is quite rude to say the least.

When you are old, you can get away with pretty much anything by just blaming it on senility. Some of the funniest things I've ever seen were [email protected]#*D UP pranks pulled by my grandparents that I'd never even consider trying.

But this one is beyond wrong. Sorry to be you OP.
