Dentist-Style Workstation Ergonomics.....(pic)

.....neat, hey Tex.....

Look past the industrial appearance – which I assume would be
streamlined a little for the eventual launch – and it’s clear
they’ve thought about more than just a tilting keyboard or
height-adjustable monitor. The armrests, headrest, seat depth
(knee to hip) and calf support are all poseable, and there are
inflatable lumbar and headrest bladders to tailor the fit. The
calf support pad will even massage you, to avoid DVT.

Clearly not. The dentist couldn't climb up in the patient's lap without hitting the monitors.

Uhhhhh, sorry big guy, if I go to the dentist and he wants to get up in my lap, someone's going to get an ass whoopin'. Maybe him......maybe me.....but an ass whoopin's going to happen one way or the other.

When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead. It's difficult only for the others.

It's the same when you are stupid

My comment was based on the fact that over my career, I have probably had at least 100 patients tell me they had a tough extraction years ago and the dentist climbed up on them to get the tooth out. Now, I've never heard from any dentist that they did that, and I don't think it would even help get the tooth out. But there are apparently a lot of people who THINK that happened to them. Go figure.

NEVER and I mean NEVER get your teeth cleaned or looked at by a dental hygienist by the name Vladimir. Trust me on this one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 8 ruined teeth and 4 hours later I was sippin' vodka as the dentist was fixing the mess for free. At least I can be in the remake of one of the Bond movies.

Those guys must be using some good drugs? I have not imagined some one in my lap since the 60's.

I had to have a tooth out about two years ago....a molar. I went to an oral maxillofacial surgeon because I was going to have an implant put in to replace it. As he prepared to pull the tooth he put the seat way down low and I commented..."got to get me into a position so you can put your knee on my chest for leverage huh"...he started laughing and had to put off the pulling for a few minutes. I had to see him quite a few times to have the entire process done and he told me I was one of his favorite patients, and he told me that he told his dentist buddies about my knee on chest remark. He did a great job by the way and I think it helps to put the doctor at ease when he is working on you.

I'm telling you, I have had numerous patients tell me some dentist put his knee in their chest pulling a tooth. It must be the sedation or something. I just can't see it happening.

When I had my wisdom teeth pulled, I had one that was particularly stubborn. They had to break it and all that jazz to get it out. Anyhow, as he was pulling that one out, I woke up and had a very heavy pressure on my chest. I don't know if it was his elbow or his knee, but something was pushing on my chest.

I remember saying, "Ummmm, I'm awake and that shit hurts." However, I'm pretty sure it sounded something like, "Uuuuu, Iiiii ayaaaaaaaake aaaaaa aaaaaaak iiiiit urrrrrrrrs."
