A DENTIST regularly makes patients feel as if they are lying, untrustworthy scumbags when they go in for a check-up.
Dental practitioner Emma Bradford quickly hones in on the lies and evasions of clients who have not been telling the whole truth about flossing regularly and ‘cleaning at the back’.
Patient Martin Bishop said: “Every time I go it’s like I’m being questioned by the police about a horrible murder. But all I’ve done is be a bit slack about brushing round my gum line.
“I know Emma can’t send me to prison for not using my interdental sticks, but she can make me feel like a worthless sack of shit who doesn’t appreciate having a lovely set of teeth.
“I used to think I was a good person, but after a trip to the dentist I realise I’m a sneaky bastard who tells fibs about using his plaque disclosing tablets. God I hate myself.”
Bradford said: “There’s no point in lying to me. I look at teeth every day. I can tell if you just started flossing again two days ago because you remembered you’d got an appointment.
“Nobody likes a liar. Sometimes I feel like getting out the special pliers and pulling out a tooth as punishment. But then they’d probably just go to Mr Hardy down the road.”
