One of the best books ever is “Dentistry and it’s Victims” written under the pen name “Paul Revere.”

*Dentistry is not an exact Science. It is moreof an art. The interpretation of XRays is subjective. One dentist will see on thing. Another will see something else.

*An “Examination” is a sales opportunity.

*The ADA is not a “Watchdog” group. Like the AMA it’s purpose is to enhance the prosperity of it’s members.

*Cavities can fix themselves. Teeth can re-mineralize.

*Instead of charging for Time and Materials most dentists charge for “procedures.” (Next time you are told you need a deep cleaning at a cost of $1500 ask them if that means you will spend 2 days in the chair being treated.)

What should concern everyone is how the dental lobby makes it so that you can not see a dental hygienist unless you go through a dentist. No matter what other conditions exist it is never a bad thing to get your teeth cleaned. But for the “safety” of the patient you must be examined by a dentist. Hasn’t the world had enough of “Safety-ism?”
