CT state senator ditches appointment with unvaccinated dentist


NORWALK, CT — For State Senator Bob Duff, if you’re not vaccinated against the coronavirus, don’t expect his business.

The Democrat, who represents Norwalk and Darien, basically said that to his dentist this week when he walked out of an appointment when he found out the dentist hadn’t had a COVID-19 vaccine.

“Went to the dentist today and sat in the chair ready to be numb,” Duff wrote on Twitter Wednesday (see below). “The dentist came in, we exchanged pleasantries and I asked if he was vaccinated. The answer was ‘NO’. I was floored.”

Duff, who is also Connecticut’s Senate Majority Leader, did not name the dentist.

“No, it does not release any other information about the encounter or the name of the dentist,” spokesperson Kevin Coughlin said in an email to Patch. “He has no plans to return to this dentist’s office in the near future.”

On Twitter, Duff continued the story. “We had another two minute chat about our prospects (I can only imagine my facial expression), and I told him I was uncomfortable and left.”

The tweets sparked a slew of retweets, comments and questions on the veteran state senator’s Twitter feed, many of which were positive and many doubted the incident happened.

“Moral of the story: don’t assume, don’t be afraid to ask, and above all, don’t be afraid to walk away,” Duff wrote.
