Tell him he needs to be finding a new patient since you're leaving
I agree with number 2, although when you leave you need to inform him that any bill he was dreaming of sending to you he can forget about since the reason you're bleeding was his inability to concentrate on the task at hand rather than stabbing you. I mean dentists are scary enough to some without that additional kind of terror and good luck with your new dentist if you dare to find one.
Sorry I have to comment one more time especially after reading some of the other comments. Yes they do have to test your gums, but they do that and get it over with and it is not with a sharp instrument. Once they get it over with they do not repeatedly stab you throughout the entire cleaning. I don't care if you're a Layman or a dentist, I don't care if you are a janitor or a dental assistant, it is plain common sense that if someone is distracted then they are going to screw up. It is also a fact that there are amazing dentists out there as well as the not so amazing. Unfortunately OP ended up with the latter.
Try flossing more. A dentist is supposed to poke your gums during the exam. If they bleed that easily, you probably have early periodontal disease. YDI for expecting the dentist to coddle you.
There's a difference between poking and stabbing. The poke should be done with a blunt tool, not the one they use to actually clean the teeth, unless they flip it around the the rounded side. My dentist has done this too, but they apologized, especially after seeing me bleed.
Dude. Have you ever felt how hard they poke you with those things? No amount of brushing or flossing would toughen your gums enough to not bleed when a sharp ( yes, most dentists use a sharp pick) object sticks your gums repeatedly. It's been proven to be a stupid way to check brushing habits but it still hasn't been fazed out
OP, I'm sorry that you not only had to deal with your dentist who is obviously incompetent but also anal retentive and unnecessarily harsh YDI's. I don't get why those who choose the "you deserve it" option and don't actually have anything besides ignorant meanness to spew out can't just cast a down-vote and be quiet. I mean I get it if the down-vote is followed up with a good reason that makes sense. But if you're just doing it for attention then why not submit your own FML?
I'm pretty sure making their patients' gums bleed is a part of their schooling...
