->''"I am an instrument of perfection and hygiene. The enemy of decay and corruption. A dentist. And I have a lot of work to do."''
-->-- '''Dr. Feinstone'''



Dr. Alan Feinstone (Bernsen) has everything. A beautiful wife, a nice house, and a popular reputation as the neighborhood dentist. Everything is tidy and clean, just as it should be. However, things go wrong when, on the day of his wedding anniversary, Feinstone spots his wife having sex with the poolman. His world shaken to its core, Feinstone starts hallucinating at work, first believing that one of his patients has a mouthful of brown, rotting teeth, and then that another is his unfaithful wife. He is about to become every dental patient's worst nightmare...

''The Dentist'' was followed by ''The Dentist 2: Brace Yourself'' in 1998, also starring Corbin Bernsen as the titular doctor.
