Really? I feel like every perio faculty member I work with is very chill.Happened to me multiple times. But perio folks do tend to knit pick more than others. "how many newtons of force do you probe with?" LOL u serious dawg?
Butt?Yup. Had it happen quite a few times. One instance I specifically remember back in dental school of a professor look like he was about to explode after checking one of my temporary restorations. He started throwing instruments around and they were falling on the floor and the patient was scared. So was I. He ended up writing a letter to the head of the restorative department that I was incompetent - I think the temp Fuji Triage didn't have contact on the mesial or distal. This was the first time I ever worked with the guy as I usually tried to avoid him. I was scared at the time - now I just LAUGH! I think the head of restorative was laughing too but it was apparent she thought the whole thing was stupid as well.
On another note - we had a perio professor who was well known to yell at students and blow up at them if their probing depths were different than his. For some reason he would just tap me on the butt every now and then and the few times I worked with him he never bothered me. It was very odd but I didn't mind.
