You know the difference between a dentist and a sadist, don't you?
But while I was in the waiting room today, I noticed something strange. There was a coke machine in the corner. With Coca-Cola. It has long been my understanding that soft drinks (along with Halloween candy) are one of the worst things that you can do to your teeth. Especially Coca-Cola, which is essentially battery acid cut with syrup.
I didn't ask anyone about it, but it still seemed strange to me. Maybe it's his way of ensuring repeat customers. Or maybe it's just the lure of the almighty buck. But I'm sure the hygienists enjoy having kids open their mouths with a fresh layer of sticky brown syrup clinging to their teeth . . .
