  3. Dr. Dolittle, DDS

    Do you have a family pet? A cat or a dog? Or maybe even a rabbit or two? If you do, do you do anything for their mouth and their teeth? Maybe a dental chew every now and then?

We memorize a mnemonic to remember the planets: “my very educated mother just served us nine pizzas,” although now it would be my very educated mother just served us noodles. (Poor Pluto!)

    Which countries have the worst teeth?   We don’t mean which countries have the most stereotypical crooked teeth, like in certain European countries, we mean which countries have the most decay and complications.   Maybe a better question would be, “which countries have the worst dental health?”   Do you have any guesses?   When we thought about this a couple theories came…Read More
