Top 5 Most Annoying Dental Patient Behaviors

Dentists Dish On What Drives Them Crazy While They Work...

30,000+ Dentists Converge in Chicago February 27-March 1

CHICAGO, Feb. 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is being issued by the Chicago Dental Society:

Who: The Chicago Dental Society (CDS) recently polled more than 300 members to find out some wacky, unusual, and just plain distracting behaviors they've encountered while patients are in their chair.

As we countdown to CDS's annual Midwinter Meeting, one of the largest displays of dental products in North America, here are the most annoying patient behaviors, according to those surveyed. Give your dentist a break and avoid these activities if possible.

5) Public displays of affection. Your breath may be minty fresh after a cleaning, but don't test it on your significant other until after you leave the dental office.

4) Playing games on your handheld. A few dentists reported getting knocked upside the head during an exam while their patients tried to continue playing their games at arms-length. Really, Tetris can wait.

3) Reading a book or magazine while the dentist is trying to perform an exam. You'll have to relinquish that People magazine or John Grisham novel so your dentist can get a look at your teeth.

2) Grooming. The light in the dental chair might be just right for touching up makeup or - heaven help us - plucking your eyebrows, but dentists really would prefer you save those activities for the bathroom.

And the most annoying thing patients do while in the dentists' chair?

Answering cell phone!

Why: Data was collected for the Chicago Dental Society's 144th annual Midwinter Meeting, which begins at McCormick Place in Chicago on February 26, 2009. The exhibit floor opens on February 27.
