Dentists in the media

In the videoclip below Dewey (Tim Conway) and Wallace (Chuck McCann) are small-town lawmen who are ordered by the governor to go undercover as prison inmates to find out where a gang of thieves have hidden their loot. While they're undercover, however, the governor dies, and because no one else knows about the ruse Dewey and Wallace are stranded in prison. How are dentists portrayed in the media? Pick up one example (movie, scene in a movie, journals, newspapers, TV, EXCEPT specialized journals and literature)and tell us about it.

Low-cost dental care

This article, which we have discussed in class, points to a major issue in dental care: expensive, unaffordable treatments as well as lack of highly-qualified professionals in many regions of the world.

Do you think we have similar problems in our country/regions of the country?

Watch the videoclip on Non-profit dental care providing.

Dear students,
This is the first post to which I would like you to send comments.

Watch the videoclip above and then comment in what ways is your own schedule similar or different from the one presented, especially referring to the professional aspects.
Other reflections are of course desirable, since you should not repeat what has already been written. This means that you have to read what your colleagues have already commented.


Since this is your first post, I would like to offer some instructions which you should consider in all the comments you are going to make.

1. It is important for you to cooperate and communicate with your colleagues here, not just to answer my question, so it is higly recommended that you agree or disagree with your colleagues, ask them questions, make comments on their own comments.

2. Please be aware that you are working in the public space, consider issues of copyright (do not copy content from sites) and netiquette (be polite).

3. Do not write too long comments (50-80 words maximum). Pay special attention to spelling and language mistakes. Posts that contain too many errors will not be approved and will, therefore, not appear on the blog in the comments side. This means that you will have to re-write them.

4. In order to post you need to have a Google Account. I suggest you add a photo to your account profile so that I can associate your name with the photo.

After you have created your account, return to the address of this site. On the top right hand corner there is an Authentication button. Click on it, log in, and wait for the moderator (me) to accept the comment.
