Thomas Fox – JD Supra – August 10, 2016
I had to go to the dentist yesterday. I went for what I thought was filling repair but I had somehow forgotten that it was a wisdom tooth removal and a filling repair. I know you are thinking either (1) why does someone his age still have wisdom teeth and (2) how could he ‘forget’ he was having said wisdom tooth removed? All I can do is channel my inner-Laura Petrolino and say as improbable as it sounds, both can and do occur, at least with me.
While I was letting the anesthesia kick in for the wisdom tooth removal, my dentist, Dr. Shan Batiste, was talking non-stop to the newly hired dental tech. Since I was both under anesthesia or had dental tools in my mouth, I could not stop to ask any follow up questions and simply listened to their dialogue. I am not sure if it was his first day or just the first time that he had worked with my dentist but she was imparting to him what it was in his interview that led her to offer the position to him. Rather amazingly, I found my dentist had some very interesting insights about the compliance function.
