Hello, is this thing on?
I’m [redacted], but my internet friends call me BowTied Gator.
why the #$@* is this alligator wearing a bowtie?
I went to school to become a dentist, and instead of dropping out I decided to graduate (curveball). One thing I’ve noticed about dentists is that they are notoriously bad at explaining things. Almost all of them mean well, despite their reputation as a ripoff; but they cannot communicate. It’s a difficult profession: a patient will curse you out one minute, and the next someone is hugging you for giving them their confidence back.
Patients (rightfully) expect a dentist to carry:
A breadth of knowledge including chemistry, biology, physicology and physics
Have manual dexterity
Carefully invade a person’s personal bubble
Tactfully respond to comments like “this is the worst hour of my day”
The ability to eloquently break down complex concepts so that a five year old can understand.
It’s no small task. To be honest, you have to be a little nuts to become a dentist.
I am more than a little nuts, but you’re the one reading this so what does it say about you? Anyway, I pride myself in my ability to distill intimidating information so that it’s easy to digest. I currently practice full time (among other things) and decided to employ a reptilian persona and educate people about oral health.
