Dentist Talk

You know how hard it is to talk to your dentist when your teeth are being cleaned or you are getting a filling? Well, I decided I would make up a sort of sign language that you could use to express yourself without having to mumble.

Below are 10 common things you might wish to say, numbered 1-10. These would be printed on a poster and mounted on the ceiling above the dentist chair.

It would give you something to read since procedures can be boring. When a phrase seems appropriate, you would just hold up the corresponding number of fingers to express yourself. The dentist would not need to stop to ask you to repeat yourself and could fix the problem right away.
  1. Everything is fine, but my nose itches.

  2. When you get a chance, there seems to be spit running down my neck.

  3. So, I guess you had garlic again for lunch today?

  4. You realize that wasn't my tooth that you just poked with that incredibly sharp tool.

  5. I would REALLY prefer you didn't do that again.

  6. Could you please suction the chunk of debris that you missed before I gag?

  7. Remember how I said I was numb? I think I may have been mistaken.

  8. Wait a minute -- maybe I am allergic to latex.

  9. Just so you know, if I don't get to take a break soon, I may bite you.

  10. Please stop asking me stupid questions about myself or I will take that paper mask off your face.
