Well, now I'm afraid to go to Oklahoma. But my opinion of dentists is largely unchanged.

Candygram4Mongo: I am not afraid to go to the dentist.

But I am too poor to go to the dentist.

If you are too poor to go to the dentist, you are definitely too poor not to go to the dentist.

$60 cleanings now or $6,000 in dental work down the road.  And trust me, dental work down the road sucks (even setting aside the price).

Ok, I had a filling that was "too shallow" to require novocaine that hurt like a biatch, but that didn't make me stop going. I just bought some damn Listerine so it never happens again. Living with farked up teeth sounds like a nightmare. You can't just wrap them up and put them in a sling.

//Seriously. Burning enamel. Ugh.

There's 7,000 people in this country who can afford going to the dentist? I guess the economy really has picked up!

TFA repeatedly said that "such occupational transmission rates are rare." Well, no farking shiat! That's because most professional dentists enforce strict hygiene standards in their practices! Unlike this asshole.

Being able to receive dental care seems like the real hallmark of middle class these days. Can you put your kids in braces? Congrats, you're middle class. Will your kids grow up hating their smile and covering their faces because they're ashamed that their teeth don't look as good as their classmates and people perceive them as not just poor, but unkempt and stupid as well? You're poor.

There aren't enough free / reduced priced dental schools in the country to help this problem, either.

Subby sounds like a rabid anti-dentite. Sure, it starts with a few jokes and some slurs. "Hey, denty!" Next thing you know you're saying they should have their own schools.

NOTHING is safe. Safety is a delusional concept.
