    Not sure if this is the correct category? But they say it's from bat soup. So the dentist calls for my tooth cleaning. They say I need to update all info. Do a coooviid 91 form. Then when I get there do the form again. Take my temperature at door. Should I have my own questionnaire for there employees? Do I bring my lazer temperature checker bought from harbor freight to check employees temperatures?

    You'll probably find yourself looking for a new dentist if you do. Cancel the appointment and reschedule for a later date if you feel uncomfortable.

    Tell them you forgot your no touch thermometer at home, so you're gonna have to do things 'the old fashioned way'. "Which one of ya wants it first?" LOL

    How about if people just stop whining about the safety policies that MIOSHA requires a business to implement in order to protect their employees.

    Do you guys get how old it is listening to all the complaints from people when those of us that are in charge of building safety hear nonstop when we are just doing our jobs? If I don't follow the safety rules I get fired. Your whining about filling out a form and standing there for five seconds as I take your temperature AS REQUIRED BY MY EMPLOYER isn't going to change a single thing.

    You don't like it?.... STAY HOME!!!!!

    Oh yeah, wearing a mask in my facility means it actually has to cover your nose and mouth too. Sitting under your chin because, "I hate these damn things!" will get you escorted out.

    Not to worry the employees are checked daily too. It sucks but it is what it is. My wife enjoys talking to all the patients who throw a fit and cry about it. Luckily her boss lets her tell them straight. It isnt a choice if you dont like it you can leave. He backs her up. Most of them dry their tears fairly quickly.

    The biggest gripe she gets isnt the temp check it is the rinsing with peroxide and the new constant suction that they pin to the side of your cheek.

    Maybe if everyone stopped whining about people whining it would all be good.

    No. That won't work either.

    I was at the dentist just yesterday. They appeared to be recording their temperatures before each customer.

    Trying to keep you and other patients safe with a few simple questions and a temp check. Definitely something to get fired up about. Most employers require the same of their employees.
