Dental Arts

I just found a website for a dentist here in our local area. This dentist has decided it was a good idea to use the term Dental Arts in his name.

All I can picture is walking into a grungy studio apartment with a big dental chair in the middle and having Isaac Mendez show up, covered in paint, all strung out on heroin and holding a dental drill. As if Dentists weren’t scary enough when they were college educated Doctors…
