You have nothing to be ashamed of Mate. If a Dentist or other service provider is going to play the frequent use of the first name game, they'd best be sure they've got the right first name. It's the only rule of that game. So if they can't figure out how to interpret information in their own patient management software, then shame on THEM.
Now, on to dime store hookers. I don't think they are a thing, but a dime store hoods are a thing.
I know this because in Stand By Me, Will Wheaton (as Gordy Lachance) says to Kiefer Sutherland "Suck my fat one you cheap dime store hood", and then River Phoenix says "Who ever told you you had a fat one Lachance?!" to which he replies "Biggest one in four counties" and they all laugh and smile because they know it is a summer they will never forget. Except we the audience don't laugh because we know that River Phoenix died.
