Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Dentist

“C'mon now. Open wide,” says Dr. Alan Feinstone (Bernsen), a successful dentist who may have attended the same school as Laurence Olivier's character in “Marathon Man.” Only he tortures not to extract information, but for revenge; including a slimy IRS agent who is extorting him over back taxes. But he saves his crowning achievement for his wife Brooke (Hoffman), whom he's observed spending a little too much time with the pool boy.
