I'm not so sure that's a con. It's like when a friend tells you that you have food in your teeth. Sure, it's embarrassing at the time, but you're happy it got pointed out. Saves yourself from future embarrassment.

I never really minded going to the dentist as a child. Mainly because he looks exactly like the original Batman, Adam West.

Is it really that bad? You either need to find a dentist with hotter hygienists or at least, more competent ones.
