  2. Episode 9: Sh!t my patients say...

    Our generation is stuck in dental purgatory in some ways. Oh, we have access to lots of great advanced dental techniques that make the job painless or go faster. But we also remember from childhood just how traumatic it could be (see previous blog for more on that...)

    I think our teeth are in a kind of purgatory at our age as well. Many of our parents have dentures, while our kids don't know the concept of having a tooth pulled. And many of us got a few missing here and there, ...

    This holiday season, our Griswold-style Christmas day celebration was marred by two things. The first was my sister-in-law flipping her car on Christmas morning while on her way to pick up her grandfather (thankfully she was ok). The second was the noticeable absence of her 88 year old grandfather at our house. For those who haven't met Arthur, you are truly missing out on an experience. Close your eyes and imagine Abraham Simpson. Tuft of white hair, glasses, wrinkles- that's grampy to a T. ...
