I’m terrified of dentists but I’m getting “meth mouth” from my ADHD meds, so I make n appointment with a place my cousin says treated her well. Everyone is supernice, until a tech comes in to get x-rays. She matches me uo to this huge machine and has me stretch up to put my chin in the machine and bite on what I guess is the x-ray film. Then she starts raising the platform my head is on! I began rising ontl my tiptoes and she toold me to stop. Then then film thing broke off when I couldn’t reaach any higher. We try again and this time she is yelling at me to stop moving, relax my sholders, etc, because the revolving part of the maaching “can’t touch your shoulders.” It isn’t! Nothing is touching me and I can barely hang on m=by my teeth! I run my hands around my shoulders to show her and she yells at me to be still. Then the littleplastic thing snaps off in my teeth again. She says “If you’re going to keep breaking that off we’re going to hve a problem here!” I told her I wasn’t trying to but I’m short and I have almost no neck. SHe stkked off without a word. The other tech saw me standing there with the chin try on about the level of my forehead, and saw me experimenting with fitting my head up that high. She came over to help and I told her I didn’t mean to make the other girl mad, but she ignored me. Loweing the chin try to its original level, she took the x-rays with no trouble. After that I asked several times why the first girl kept runing it so high and stated that I felt I was bullied, possibly over an issue I noted on the intake form. The person I said that to just got offended nd said she, herself, was professional and did not bully people. SIgh. No one ever did answer my questions and simply went on as if all was normal. In order to fix my teeth I have to go bck 4 times and I think I am noted as “Problem patient” now. If anyone else would accept my insurnce, I’d switch practices.
