As I wrote in another of my entries, I don't really like it when a dentist and assistant have little chit chats going on that aren't related to me while they are working on me. It should be all about meeee! Haha. Today was especially bad though, because he was ranting about a new employee who isn't learning her job fast enough, and it sounds like he's not going to keep her. I was so uncomfortable. I can't imagine she didn't hear him if I heard so much about his first patient. He eventually apologized to me, but then he kept doing it and told his assistant not to make excuses for her.
Yes, it should be all about you, giving your undivided attention is a sign of basic respect and caring for your patients. On that basis alone, I absolutely would try and get a consultation with the other dentist (and don't worry about us losing out on some amusing journal entries )
