NPR Trashes Dentists

Dentists (and those who love them :-)) need to respond to this. It is tantamount to a blood libel. A Duke university psychology professor claims dentists mis-diagnose and then over treat in order to make more money. HT ADA. BTW his claims are based on data from Delta…go figure.

And we asked both dentists to find cavities. And the question is, what would be the match? How many cavities will they find, both people would find in the same teeth?

….It turns out what Delta Dental tells us is that the probability of this happening is about 50 percent.
