We love blue jeans, pop culture, and fast food; but we hate going to the dentist.
Even if these aren’t the only stereotypes thrust upon the collective dental going American public, we’re not here to incite an international debate on obesity vs. dental dismay.
That would be too easy; what we hope to explore here are the reasons behind these unnerving dental-centric dietary stereotypes.
How is it that we can spend our hard-earned dough on super-sizing the (perceived) value meal, while at the same time ignoring our collective dental health to the point of visiting the emergency room instead of keeping up with our normal dental appointments – all as the less than sluggish economy continues to dawdle its way back to some semblance of a recovery?
Don’t worry, this isn’t going to be a politically charged tangential dental health blog post – we’ll get enough of that over the next few months.
And we promise not to preach how an ounce of prevention is worth a Euro of cure…er dollar…doh, pound. Yeah that’s it, pound of cure.
But the tough questions need to be asked before we can work together on the answer.
