Dental tools to scribe panel lines?

I was wondering if anyone has tried this. My wife is in the business and can
get me some tools (the type they use to scrape teeth and such). If someone
has tried this, and it worked can you give me an idea what type of tool was
used.
Thanks,

 My sister was a dental hygenist for her co-op program in school and she
got me a few dental tools that worked. Two were made by HU-FRIEDY with
the numbers S204S and SRPG 11/12 AF, the latter worked particularily
well and is comparable to the BMF scriber. It gives a finer line but
does not remove the plastic as well although I don't find this much of a
problem since I sand down the kit anyway when I rescribe. The former
worked but only with one end and it was akward due to the way the tip
was bent to the side, although it did make some tasks easier. The third
tool has no name or markings on it but it's basically a big hook and it
works pretty good too.
 Other than the Tamiya/Olfa scriber they seem to work just as well as
any other purpose made scriber I've used although as I mentioned they do
not remove the plastic as well.

Absolutely,

I have preferred my dental scraper which has two scribing ends, one square
and one circular, for years to the instrument I have that is called a
scribing tool. the dental tool will work rings arounfd it and give me a
finer recessed line also. I initially cut my scribe line with an X-Acto #11
and use the dental tool from there. I amso have a dental burnishing tool,
which is great for burninshing Bare-metal foil in tight spots. I get my
tools from my personal dentist, who gives them to me once he has used them
and the sharpness is still great for injected plastic, resin, or white
metal.

Where do you think they  came up with the idea for scribing tools in the
first place?

Sorry new to the hobby, should have figured that one out I guess.

I love going to the dentist! I get all the tools he's going to s***and I've
ordered several cool things out of his catalog. Dental alginate makes great
molds.

I have a set of the Hu-Friedy tools that my hygienist gave me. They
work great for scribing. Also, if you have a particularly messy
fuselage seam, you can use them to scrape away some of the plastic
before sanding. My hygienist is going to keep an eye out for extra
forceps, clamps, etc. that they might be getting rid of also.
