Patience with my patients

Patient # 1- The tuna and onions lady
U have already met her
Age: 19

Me: (examining her mouth)

When was the last time u brushed ur teeth?
ummmm well…

** after a while u learn the signs of trouble, when u ask someone when they brushed their teeth and the answer isn’t this morning, u have a long day ahead

to tell u the truth Dr, I have never brushed
never, and I have been smoking since I was 12
(starts picking tuna)

Patient #2: Deceiving smile

*I walk into the clink, pick a case file, peek at the dental history, one filling in 10 years!
Yeah baby! A clean one! Easy job

Hello ma'am, I'm just going to take down your medical history before I start work
Patient: alright

Me :
Do u suffer from any diseases, Diabetes, High blood pressure..
I have HIV & AIDS
*Why me God why! *smile at patient
Me:Just a Minuit ma'am
(I don’t know if I should be dealing with this)
*I look for the supervisor
Dr, my patient has HIV and AIDS, I never worked with an AIDS patient and I'm nervous
just change ur gloves get the surgical ones
that’s it?
Dr eshda3wa please don’t keep your patient waiting
The woman was really nice, she kept telling me to be careful, be careful.
Khatamt elquraan wana I was working!

Patient # 3:
Masturbating maniac
(working on the patient)
DR ur beautiful
sir please don’t talk while I work or I mite hurt you
Dr u have the most beautiful eyes I have ever seen
(I try not to puncture his tongue!)
*strange movement, I look up and the maniac has his fly open masturbating!!!
( scream, run away, and call security)

Patient # 4: B
iting Beast

I don’t work with kids yet, but to avoid work in my own clinic I always go play with the kids, my friend calls me
eshda3wa ur good with kids, come help me, hes crying and wont let me work
*I go to the kid, calm him down, blow up a glove into a balloon, soon were playing thumbs war
will u let the nice Dr look into ur mouth?
no I want you
OK ill do it
* I put one finger into his mouth and
The beast bites my finger!
aAaAaaAaaaH let go let GOO!!

Patient # 5 : a$$

a$$: Dr. your working on the wrong tooth
Me: excuse me?
a$$: that's not the one that hurts me, its the one after it
Me: the one I'm working on has caries
a$$: But the one behind it bleeds when i brush
Me: but the one I'm working on is the one that needs fixing
*shows him the x-ray
Patient: you obviously don't know what your doing, this tooth doesn't hurt me!
Me: there is nothing wrong with the tooth after it
Patient: I demand a second opinion
(second opinion? is he serious? its a damn superficial caries, its a joke, not a damn surgery!)

And I have a lot more where that came from!
The guy who thought I was too short
The guy who tried to sell me weed
The woman who started breast feeding
The guy who spat at me

The guy who fell in love with me
But ill leave those for another post

March 27, 2007 at 5:48 AM  


You can't be serious about patient number 3, can you? Note to self: Ask if your dentist has a blog. Mob nag9een fe'6aye7 loooool.
I really need to go to a dentist :-S
These stories are actually encouraging, I'll try to freak out my dentist. Maybe I'll dye my teeth with fake blood LOOL

March 27, 2007 at 5:56 AM  

Where the hell is this? Do you work in Kuwait?

and I thought my students were bad!

Poor you!!

March 27, 2007 at 7:41 AM  

OMG is that for reaaal...daaamn :s how long have u been a dentist, it seems like u have a weird situation everydaay :s
allah yekoon ma3aaki walla...good luck :p

March 27, 2007 at 9:34 AM

March 27, 2007 at 9:37 AM

March 27, 2007 at 9:49 AM  


One of your best posts really.

I can't believe you had patients like Patient 2 & 3. Patient 5 is your very typical Arab guy.

I am also looking for the guy who tried to sell you weed, and the one who thinks you are short..

That's gonna be reaaaaaaally fun :D

March 27, 2007 at 10:24 AM  

wow! you experienced alomst everything :D


BTW.. the guy who fell in love with you.. it was me ;P *broken heart*

March 27, 2007 at 11:23 AM

March 27, 2007 at 11:35 AM

Allah y3eenech

March 27, 2007 at 11:56 AM  

OMG!! What a hilarious post! And one of your best one too.
Was that PT. 3 real?? Can't really believe it.
As for the biting beast, I ahev seen something like this. I had gone for a dental checkup, and a kid biting the dentist's finger. And let me tell you everyone except the doc was amused....

March 27, 2007 at 12:52 PM  

lol...should be required reading for all prospective dentists...

All I ever do is choke out uuugg ...aaah the continuous questions of my chatty ortho.

March 27, 2007 at 1:43 PM

patient 3 killed me...

xlant post you made my day

3 cheers

March 27, 2007 at 2:13 PM  

actually the sad truth is i am NOT loving it, not even an itsy bitsy bit, which makes it 1000 times harder!

glad my misery amuses u, hehehe
i get really pissed when these things happen
but now that i think of it
it is funny
oo allah ywafg eljamee3

it BETTER pay well! the hell these ppl put me thru!

blood does not freak dentists out, its nothing, we are immune to it.
and DO NOT freak ur dentist out! remember we can hurt u!

bet ur students look pretty good to u rite now
no im not working in kuwait
still a student
allah yaster when i do work!

yep its very real!
and i havent been a dentist for long! its my first year do to clinical work, and yeah its pretty much every day that i get a whack job!

new bride
fun? not exactly the word ide choose !

glas it amused u!
ya its all real, and u have seen nothing yet!

everything? nope my Prof says this is just the tip of the icebrg!
alot more ahead!
awww! hussain la teftha7 3mrik ya 7athy!

again, fun would be my word of choice!
oh ya and u think he would have stopped when i screamed! NOPE securtiy had to zip him up themselves!

oh yeah, we dentist enshoof el3ajayb!
alah y3een eljamee3

as funny as it looks, having someone try to bite ur finger off is NOT fun!! it hurts!
pt 3 was disturbing, i avoided all male patients for 2 weeks, till i got the breast feeding lady, so i switched back!

u sound like a good patient :)
ya they should give u a heads up b4 u apply 4 dental skool

mosan mosan
oooh then u would have loved my drunk patient today, he started singing to me while my hand was in his mouth!
anytime u feel down, tell me, ill tell u a few uplifting stories

Patient 2:
Allah y3afeha wala yeblana.

Patient 3:
Bala fe shaklo illy ma yasta7y.

Patient 4:
Children are little beasts (remembers her two little cousins)

Patient 5:
Esh yb'3a hatha. As if he is telling you what to do. I hate it when ppl y3alomonik ish howa sho'3lik , god they get on my nerves.

March 28, 2007 at 7:35 AM  

It sounds like Saudia Arabia. Have you ever correlated how initially superficial the characters you confront eventually become their true selves is a direct reflection of the society you live and work in?

What an intrinsically interesting look into the mentality of the people you described through dentistry.

March 28, 2007 at 8:13 AM  

lol!! This post just cracked me up!!
Is each one of them a real incident?

And why do people keep on harrassing you??

Supervisor: Dr. eshda3wa please don’t keep your patient waiting. <<<< lol @ Dr. eshda3wa!

great post, I like!

March 28, 2007 at 9:24 AM  

Oh my God; You poor thing :S

how did u conclude its saudi? cz its not. Plus working in a university hospital means cheap service, so the ppl tht come are the ones that cant really afoord much of anything.. a certain not so happy class of ppl

yep every one of em is very real, there just angry ppl!
its not always like that, i get half decent ones, but they are not fun to write about :)

True faith
yes it is, but im hopeing to get used to it with time
