    Lookout Bleeb, Dalcon is sneaking up behind you. It looks like he wants to introduce you to a club, and not the fun kind!

    OR……maybe he’s just looking for a peek also.

    In today’s litigious culture, those people might end up owning the dental practice…

    This isn’t the only reason I hate peanut brittle.

    Wouldn’t work on me. I don’t eat things made of peanuts.

    Just a thought, why would you use a toothpaste dentists recommend? If it worked they would lose patients?

    The dentist in my neighborhood is right next to the Andy’s Ice Cream place. Seems a bit co-dependent to me.

    The hard stuff that breaks teeth isn’t as dangerous as the firm stuff that fuses your jaw shut and pulls fillings.

    Actually, the #1 cause of tooth fractures is popcorn. Salad croutons also make a significant contribution to unexpected visits to the dentist. And finally, those insidious pieces of shell that make their way into packages of nuts that go undetected until we bite one.

    I’ve never been able to stomach peanut brittle. Even as a kid, I thought it looked like chunks of dried vomit. Then my cousin puked up peanut brittle, confirmed my suspicion. It looked exactly the same but in liquid form…

    Of course, the dental hygienists aren’t too happy.

    The local allergist also made a fortune.

    “Yes Doctor Nilmont, the peanut brittle was an awesome idea! We’re also expecting the Tooth Fairy with a large delivery of used dentures, too!”

    “Although, she said, after this delivery, she won’t be doing it anymore… sump’n about having to “drink a glass of water” or sump’n… I’m not really sure what she meant by that, but she just said: “I’m out!”…….シ

    An old dentist of mine in San Diego really did provide full size three musketeers bars as you left. I asked about it, they said it was good advertising because all the patients would tell others that they couldn’t believe the dentist would do that.

    This was a great article. In 1966-68 I actually was a dental student in San Francisco. Didn’t finish, but it was a great time to be living in that city !!

    Dentists don’t have to do anything. Candy companies and holidays provide them with all the patients they can handle.
