Dancing Dentist "At the Carwash"

Not a new story, but yikes!  Shocked

Patient says dancing dentist misstepped
Quote
SYRACUSE, N.Y. - A dentist was dancing to a song on the radio while drilling on a woman's tooth, and she wound up in the hospital when the drill bit snapped off and lodged near her eye, a lawsuit alleges. Brandy Fanning, 31, said she had to undergo emergency surgery and spent three days in the hospital because of the October 2004 mishap.
...
...
Fanning said she went to the center's emergency dental clinic after pain in a left molar started getting worse. With a root canal ruled out as an option, Trusty gave her some Novocain and began drilling to break up the tooth before extracting it, she said.

As Trusty drilled, he was "performing rhythmical steps and movements to the song `Car Wash,'" which was on the radio, according to the lawsuit. Then, Fanning heard a snap.

Trusty tried to use a metal hook to pull the bit out, but that only pushed it farther up, driving it through the sinus and bone near her eye socket, the lawsuit alleged.

Dr. Trusty doesn't sound so trustworthy.

Being that my dad's in the dental field (technician not dentist), there's a lot I have to say about this topic.

Number 1: Don't cut corners.  Getting 1 hour dentures = poor quality, soon needing repair
Number 2: For that matter, only go to a dentist that is reputable.
Number 3: Stuff breaks.  To avoid, change bits sooner rather than later. (Even then it's not a guarantee)  Actually, I think

Especially in regards to this case:
Number 4: Music really can be a distraction
Number 5: This is an emergency dental clinic not an emergency medical clinic.  That "dentist" should not have even tried to remove it, especially not with a metal hook.

I remember back in middle school or so, there was this kid who was bragging about his dad being an oral surgeon. I laughed and said, "Wouldn't it be easier to perform surgery with your hands?"

Wow.  You had it all the way back then.

I guess I was bit of a smart-ass back then. Things changed in high school though. In my freshman year, I went into the quiet, reserved mode so that I wouldn't seem so obnoxious to an upperclassman girl that I was trying to impress in one of my classes. Of course, it never worked.

lol.

But there is a difference between a dentist and an oral surgeon.  Namely, the oral surgeon has much more extensive training in surgery.  It's one thing to perform the surgical procedure of extracting a tooth, it's another to remove an object for the sinus/nose. 

As it is, there are dentists that struggle with what they've "learned".  And you wouldn't want someone like that trying to perform something of which they haven't had much study.

If it was me, I would rather tough out the pain until the next day when I could get an emergency appointment with a proven dentist than go to a emergency dental clinic not knowing who I'll get.  That's just me, though.
