I was speaking to a pt’s daughter during an office visit one day. The daughter was un-groomed and by the looks of her tooth decay, clothing, odor she wasn’t the most hygienic person. Though the pt was very well, kept. Daughter was explaining that pt would not take a bath that she didn’t know what to do. I was trying to explain to her that she needed to encourage her to be more hygienic. She asks “Well, isn’t there a pill for that?”… Me: Umm no. She huffed at me and said “You just don’t want to help” I said “No there just hasn’t been a oral hygienic treatment found yet” She stomped off. Physicians down the hall over hearing this started laughing.
