My dentists have almost always been guys and my dental hygenists always women. I once had a female dentist and that was fine (she was also rather cute and Singaporean but that doesn't make me a bad person).
But, yeah, if I went for a clean up and got a burly guy I`d be uncomfortable.

I usually prefer women dentists because they have smaller fingers and don't rip your face open. One male dentist I visited was built like a prop-forward and had fingers like Cumberland sausages. Not a pleasant experience.

I have cleaned several sets of teeth on so many different people,and I would say I am pretty gentle at what I do.. I do my best by getting my patient to relax by calmly talking to them, and I explain everything that I am going to do before I do it...They are nervous enough to be there in the first place, and one of the last places most people want to be is sitting in a dental chair for any reason...I also work with a lot children which I think can be the some of the hardest patients to get to cooperate. With kids it takes a certain degree of finess to get them to sit and trust you enough to work in their mouth..I am usually pretty successful at it...I guess what I am trying to say is.. I think scared children and adults tend respond very well with women...
