Lackey AND Toadies

The dentist I went to all my growing up years, who was also our orthodontist, had himself and a lady who was a receptionist. Now, when I go to the dentist, there’s 3-4 people at the front desk, 6 or 7 cubicles with a dental hygienist in each, and then seems like a dozen other people running thither and anon. And then, the dentist himself makes a 30 second appearance just at the end. The MD’s office is the same way.
