Real-world dentistry – USA

BBC Short film on USA dental charity

Sometimes we need to remember that a large number of the population would benefit from simple high quality dental treatment. Dentistry is an extremely expensive  service to provide and I have yet to find qualified staff who will work for free and land lords that will waive the rent but there needs to be a practical middle ground solution. We got quite close to it when I was in the military which provided a limited but high quality core service provided by salaried staff who where allowed to take pride in their work. Simple can be beautiful with a bit of ‘soul in the game’.
