Dentists Top 5 Annoyances

The Chicago Dental Society recently polled over 300 dentists to find out what annoys them most when they're working on patients.

5. PUBLIC DISPLAYS OF AFFECTION. Your breath might be minty fresh right after a cleaning, but don't test it on your significant other until AFTER you've left the office. Apparently, dentists hate it.
4. PLAYING GAMES ON YOUR PHONE. A few dentists said they got knocked upside the head because their patients were playing games on their phone during dental appointments. So put the phone away for 30 minutes. Really . . . Tetris can wait.
3. READING A BOOK OR MAGAZINE DURING AN EXAM. While you're in the waiting room, read all you want, but if you insist on reading DURING your cleaning, it's hard for your dentist to get a good look at your teeth.
2. GROOMING. The light in the dentist's chair might be just right for touching up makeup or plucking your eyebrows . . . but dentists would prefer it if you saved those activities for the bathroom.
1. ANSWERING THEIR CELL PHONE. So unless the call is regarding a dental EMERGENCY . . . which it never is . . . PLEASE, just let it go to voicemail.
