I have been getting PM's in an attempt to discuss dentistry as a part of health care. I have always wanted to respect another's confidientiality but using PM's in order to hide their criticisms is in my opinion an abuse of PM's.
Today, I received this PM. I have left out one phrase which might identify the sender but in no way changes the context of the PM.
"A young woman had a mouthful of rotten teeth and abscesses. Says none of the dentists in town will see her. Her family DOCTOR has been taking care of her teeth?? My wife got two similar calls in the middle of the night to take care of teeth,l While the dentists were sound asleep in their cozy beds. What's up with that? Where's the emergency care? I hope this is an anomaly, as I'm very disappointed with the professionalism(lack thereof) of dentistry in this area."
Let it be known that I have no problem discussing the dental profession having been in dentistry for 35 years. I do not hide who I am or where I live nor my history of dental practice and where I practiced.
Anybody who wants to discuss this question or an other question about dentistry, I will be happy to try and answer it, so long as they make themselves known and above board.
