    Default Defamation of Dentist

    ... and it probably didn't do much for the romantic aspects of your evening, either.

    Sure, the dentist could sue you; but it probably won't happen. Defamation suits are expensive to bring, and even if this is defamation per se (due to the nature of your allegations) the dentist would have an extraordinarily difficult time establishing damages. You would presumably also argue that your allegations were true, or were otherwise protected as your opinion.
