I’ve been going to the same dentist for years. This year he got a new hygienist. I am really attracted to her. Like distractingly attractive. Is it appropriate to ask her out?

There isn’t anything inappropriate about asking her out. It’s likely your hygienist will be flattered . Just bear in mind that she is a professional. Don’t make her job uncomfortable for her if she declines.
Whether she says yes or no, you know that you will at least enjoy your dental appoitments. There doesn’t seem to be a downside here unless she turns you down and you don’t handle that well. Years ago, we had a dental hygienist in our office, and one of her patients asked her out. They hit it off together and she ended up marrying him. So you never know.
Don’t become the creepy stalker dental patient.
