Dental Art

by Larry Emmott on May 27, 2020

in Dental Art

 

“Odontoman” The artist is… me, Larry Emmott. I have had a few requests for dental art by me and I found this scrounging around in my old dental school yearbook. This is the cover to a “comic book” I wrote in dental school. It is every bit as raunchy and inappropriate as you would expect from a college student in the 1970s.

Dental art is anything that depicts teeth or dentistry in an interesting or artistic way. If you have any suggestions for future Dental Art pieces please send them to me or give me a link. Thanks.

Previous “Dental Art” images can be found here on Pinterest.

From 9to5Mac:

Smart home company Wink has been accused of extortion by customers furious at an announcement that they will be forced to pay a monthly subscription else their existing products will cease to function.

This is another example if the hazy issue of ownership in the digital age. If a vendor can make a device you have paid for useless by disabling online functionality do you really own it?

A dental vendor could easily do something similar with any device that is linked to the Internet. For example a digital impression scanner. What happens if you do not pay your monthly subscription fee?
