I really like the dentist and I usually enjoy the hygienists too, but my last visit was horrible. The worst dental hygienist I've ever encountered. She did not talk to me about what she was doing, she would simply press her tool to my lips to signal I needed to open my mouth. When she did talk to me, she used a whiny baby-talk tone as if I was a child. Also, she didn't pay attention to what she was doing. At one point I had water all over my face & down my neck. When I tried to wipe it off she told me to wait, that she would give me a towel when she was finished. Finally, the entire procedure was extremely painful. I usually fall asleep at the dentist, yesterday I was gripping the chair & cringing because of the rough treatment of my mouth. She didn't appear to realize I was trying to get away from her. I almost walked out several times. As sore as my gums are today, I wish I would have. I may never ho back.
