A patient went viral on TikTok after showing his dentist watching a tutorial video on YouTube before fixing his tooth.

While on a holiday in Mexico, TikToker bummercreek decided to visit a dentist to get his teeth treated. However, he was left stunned when his doctor cued up a YouTube tutorial on how to properly do the procedure.

In a short clip with 1.3 million views, he wrote in a text overlay: “I came to the dentist in Mexico and they started watching a tutorial before they fixed my tooth”

The video showed him sitting in the patient’s chair, before it cut to him with an apparatus in his mouth that kept his cheeks open.
