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.

How’s the Economy Doing? Watch the Dentists

If not for coronavirus, you’d expect your local dentist office to be doing just fine.

Dentist offices tend to be stable businesses that stick around for decades, unlike restaurants that open and close frequently. Dentists earn a healthy salary — a median of $159,000 — and offer services with no clear substitute. If you need your teeth cleaned or a cavity filled, the dentist is the only option.

This makes them, in the eyes of some economists, the perfect barometer for gauging the country’s recovery from the shock of the pandemic.

“If you look at your typical dentist office, nothing went wrong with their business model,” said Betsey Stevenson, an economics professor at the University of Michigan. “It’s just coronavirus that happened.”
