Change is a positive thing but it can be viewed as a scary thing that gives some pause when it’s robust and truly challenging the status quo.
Innovation is happening throughout the medical industry but it is in particular affecting dentistry.
The following are some great quotes that aptly describe the phenomenon we are bearing witness to:
“According to my mother, there pretty much wasn’t anything I wouldn’t eat as a child. Not just try, but eat. I was even inclined to dig into stuff about which she expressed open disgust – lobster and other shellfish, and cheap Chinese food with pepper so hot it made your gums feel like a medieval dentist had been at them.” – Alice Dreger
“I do get scared of the dentist, so a drive-through dentist might make me feel more at home. If I got to stay in my car.” – Jessica Pare
“The grinding of the intellect is for most people as painful as a dentist’s drill.” – Leonard Woolf
“I am keeping with tradition today. After I learned of my Golden Globe nomination, I went to the dentist, so today, let’s make it to the orthodontist.” – Frankie Muniz
“I went to the dentist for a toothache, and it turned out his kids were in an acting school. We talked about it, and I decided to enroll at the same school. I was 14. I guess you could say I just got lucky.” – Nolan Gerard Funk
“I am lucky: I have fantastic doctors and a fantastic dentist.” – Anna Deavere Smith
“I’m like the guy who prepares your taxes or a dentist. I’m very conservative and boring in a lot of ways.” – Augusten Burroughs.
“For almost anyone who chooses to be a writer, since so very few writers are able to learn a living from their work that is equivalent to the living earned by the average dentist or accountant.” – Russel Banks
