Patients can share anything they want about their treatment with anyone they want but the dentist and dental staff is not allowed to do so. Patients can, however, waive their privilege by filing a legal action, by publishing the treatment in a public forum or on social media, or through specific statutory exceptions.

    What about dentists/assistants babbling about an usual patient behaviour in the dental clinic or something the patient said. Because I always seem to hear these kinda talks in the doctors/assistants lounge.
