Came across this great quote from Woody Allen in a recent issue of Esquire Magazine. Thought I'd share it with you.

It reminds me of my experiences as the student dentist for student athletes at USC. Whether it was the top linebacker or lineman in the country, if Read more [...]

Watching Your Silver Fillings
SCROLL DOWN FOR THE CODE WORD FOR A MAJOR SAVINGS!
Up until the late 1980’s, silver was the most used material for fillings. Dentists preferred these fillings, also known as amalgams, for their strength, ease of placement, and durability.
