A new “Karen” is going viral for threatening to sue a dental office after being asked to wear a face mask and have her temperature checked.

TikTok user DaniSmiles posted the encounter to her account Wednesday with the caption, “Not my office but GOOD LORD. #Karen.” The video shows an unidentified woman refusing to wear a mask in the waiting room of what appears to be a dentist’s office.

Dubbed “Dentist Karen,” the blonde woman declares, “You’re going to work on my teeth, not my nose. I don’t wear masks getting my teeth cleaned.”

When the front-office staff explained that masks are required in the waiting room in order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, the woman insinuated she would use her hand to cover her mouth.

A visit to the dentist will get expensive. But is it safe to book an appointment during the pandemic?

WASHINGTON: Is it safe to visit the dentist during the COVID-19 pandemic? Dentists can’t eliminate all risk, but they are taking steps to minimize the chances of spreading the coronavirus.

You’ll likely notice changes as soon as you enter the office. Many dentists have removed magazines from waiting rooms, for example, as well as some chairs to encourage social distancing.

They also are spacing out appointments to avoid crowding their offices.

You may be asked to arrive for your appointment with a facial covering and to wait in your car until equipment is cleaned and the dentist is ready. Before receiving care, you can also expect staff to take your temperature and ask about COVID-19 symptoms.

Procedures are changing, too.
