* Website/{{Bogleech}} has the short story "[[http://scythemantis.deviantart.com/art/Doctor-Dementist-363266705 Doctor Dementist]]", where the narrator finds himself the prey of a mechanical monstrosity whose very vague understanding of dentistry will absolutely not stop it from drilling into your teeth. Interestingly, Doctor Dementist's demeanor comes off as [[BlueAndOrangeMorality alien]] rather than sadistic. [[WordOfGod According to the author]], it likely [[WasOnceAMan used to be a regular dentist once]], and still tries to be one despite having somehow turned into a terrifying monster.

* In ''Literature/AHarvestOfWar'', Guinevere Thyll. However her dentistry (and medical practice in general) is separate from her depravity, mostly. She won't back down on performing extremely painful procedures without anaesthesia, however - [[PragmaticVillainy if there isn't any available]] or [[BadAss the patient refuses it.]]

The trope arises from that fact that until the early 1800s, teeth yanking was usually under the purview of (usually badly trained) [[TheBarber barbers]], who generally took the "brute-force" approach towards dental surgery. Also, the use of anesthesia was not common place until after WWII. As a procedure that most people would have undergone and lived through, a distrust of it obviously would have developed. French even use the expression "mentir comme un arracheur de dents" ("to lie like a tooth-puller") for BlatantLies.

* Dr. Wolfe in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode "Last Exit to Springfield." When Ralph Wiggum claims to brush regularly, Wolfe says, in a Boris Karloff-like voice, "Why must you turn my office into a house of lies?" and proceeds to [[ScareEmStraight scare him straight]] with the horrific ''[[BritishTeeth Big Book of British Smiles]]''. He then terrifies Lisa and Marge with an over-the-top computer simulation of what Lisa will look like unless [[BracesOfOrthodonticOverkill she gets braces]]. And when Wolfe does outfit her with braces and headgear, BackAlleyDoctor style, she [[GoMadFromTheRevelation reacts like the Joker]].
