Dental Hygienist And Dentist Clearly Employing Some Sort Of Good Cop, Bad Cop Strategy

Published Friday, September 13th, 2019

Patients of Sarah Marsh DDS have reported that the dentist and her hygienist, Emily Phillips, are clearly employing some sort of good cop, bad cop strategy in their practice.

“The hygienist was so sweet,” patient Joe Clemente said after a disorienting appointment with the pair. “She said I had a perfect smile, flawless gums, and that my brushing technique was impressively on point. Then Dr. Marsh showed up and told me I had to get 8 cavities filled and that I’m not flossing enough.”

“The hygienist immediately came in and cheerfully asked me what color toothbrush I wanted for my beautiful smile,” he continued uneasily. “But that was immediately followed by Dr. Marsh clicking her tongue and telling me that I’d look a lot better with veneers. I didn’t know what to think.”

“At the end of the appointment, while the hygienist was making nice small talk about the weather, I caught a glimpse of Dr. Marsh staring at me through a crack in the door with her eyes narrowed. Then she held up my X-rays and made a throat-slitting motion.”

At press time, Dr. Marsh reportedly shined a bright light in Clemente’s eyes and shouted, “We have ways of making you floss!”
