THE worst. Paper writing? Taking cash? Big freakin deal!!
Pedophile State practically encouraged child rape. They deserve nothing less than the death penalty. Heck, cancel the whole university for a while!”

“very true, if they had been getting those $100 check ups every year, the big bills would likely never come. It's just like car maintenance, you can only skip the $25 oil changes so long before the $1000 repair comes along.”
QUIT DRINKING SODA and floss your teeth! I'm 34 and had one partial cavity 13 years ago. Take some initiative for your own health!”

“Even with proper care you still need to see a dentist. I brush/floss regularly have a very low sugar intake, don't smoke, don't drink and am still required to see the dentist every 3 months because of periodontal disease. Even with good habits, if I didn't go to the dentist you could bet I could develop serious issues which could easily result in tooth loss or much worse.”

“If you have an underlying medical condition that causes dental disease and cannot afford to get it treated either, your "rules" do not apply. Sorry.”

“Well my son is 44 and has only had one small cavity in his life, & that was when he was small. He drinks soda, it is just the nature of your teeth. How they get cavities or not. Dont be so smug!!!”

“Many dental problems are hereditary and can't be avoided with flossing and not drinking sodas. Your empathy for people who can't even afford basic dental care is heart-warming. Lemme guess, tea partier?”

“Yeah that should do it. LOL. Puuulllleeeeese.”

“Just fyi, studies have shown that its partially hereditary on your maternal side how your teeth will be. The other part is how you take care of your teeth. But, some people no matter how hard they take care of their teeth, they will still get cavities.
Not everyone is as lucky as you. I floss daily, brush with my SoniCare toothbrush and rinse every night. I still had cavities at my last visit.
My husband's wisdom tooth has poked through and is rotting from an infection that has nothing to do with soda (that we don't drink) and flossing.
Perhaps you shouldn't judge quite so harshly or quickly. You just might find yourself with cavities your next dentist visit! ;)”

“Some people have a stronger enamel than others. It is basically genetic. That being said, you really should read better prior to making silly statements and judgments.”

“Gosh. If your anecdotes aren't proof that everyone's dental issues are their own fault, then I don't know what is. Do you write your own column? Where can I see more of your work?”
