Today, I went to the dentist to get a tooth filled. The nurse just finished taking my info when the doctor came in and started drilling. Through my chorus of screams he realized he'd forgotten to numb me. His only response was, "Guess I forgot to numb ya, huh?" while giggling. FML

56 - Where have you heard that? The few doctors I know have INFINITE respect for vets. I've never heard anyone down-talk the profession. It's like being a normal doctor except all your patients have different anatomies, potential diseases/abnormalities, they can't tell you any symptoms that aren't readily apparent

@#4 My three year old baby cousin did this exact thing! She punched her dentist in the face and waddled as fast as she could out of the office & into the waiting room. Her mouth was filled with cotton/sponges, blood on the bib, and everything. The dentist didn't numb her before the procedure and she was too young to speak for herself, so she made a break for it. Haha. :)

Is it classified as a "nurse"? I know where I am from we have dental assistants, if they called themselves nurses they would be laughed at. And I don't recall ever seeing a nurse at the dentist.

It doesn't matter to them; as long as the procedure is still done properly, they make profit. Some careers can rob you of your ability to empathize...

They don't block your throat in any dental procedure I've heard of, so I see no reason why OP wouldn't have been able to scream, even if it sounded a little muffled through the dentist's hand in his mouth.
