Re: Hair vs. Teeth

This post has actually been submitted a short time ago in response to a posted response to my first/opening post on this blog. That post is titled "Dental Industry Hype". 

Response to Anonymous Dentist:

It's been awhile since I started this blog and haven't 'budgeted' the time to get back here. But, at 11.00/hr vs. a Dentists income, I have a lot less 'time' to put into my blog, since I have to scramble everyday to juggle bills and a job and a half to barely stay afloat.

But I digress, I am responding to the anonymous dentist’s comments. So let me see if I get this right. You say Americans spend 10X more on their hair than on their teeth? I'll have to budget the time to look into those figures as well, but since I've already seen the numbers for projected spending this year on Cosmetic Dental work alone, I'll use those numbers here for brevity.

telling the different types of teeth apart

can anyone help me to find the easiet way to learn how to tell the different types of teeth on a dental assistant test i have upcoming. the teacher is going to give us loose teeth and we are going to have to name and label them for grades. i need some help differentiating between maxillary molars 1, 2, and 3 plus maxillary premolars and canines and incisors of the mandibular of these teeth too. please help!!!!


So unfortionatly we all know that undergrad requires you to write about and do things that you are not so thrilled about. I have a paper due in a few weeks and it has to be on argument on something going on in a dental community or well a community that has to do with my furture profession.... so my question is...if statistics say that dentist among any other medical profession have the highest suicide rate why is it that so many people continue to persure a career? my second one is that if children and people ingeneral are so afraid of dentists and going then how are practices still going strong?
