The Dentist (1996)

This is an imperfect-but-creditable movie. Dr. Alan Feinstone (Corbin Bernsen) is an overworked and stressed dentist who feels pressure from the IRS about the financial records at his clinic. After catching his wife (Linda Hoffman) in an affair with the swimming pool repairman, he decides to get revenge on both of them. When he starts having hallucinations that prevent him from distinguishing between fantasy and reality, he unintentionally causes harm to his patients during oral exams and procedures.

A sequel to the film was released in 1998. Dr Glennon E. Engleman was a real life dentist turned serial killer. He murdered at least seven people and his methods included shooting, bludgeoning, and explosives.
