We love coming to Roswell NM. Yes we have also visited the Georgia version of Alien City minus the little green men of course! We managed to get a copy of their Sunday paper before heading home to prepare for the bustle of the new school year.
Was not too surprised to see same high pressure sales tactics used by Dentists in the large cities present in a small town. DDS and MSPH Dr Tim Price paid for an advertisement in the Roswell Daily Record that features an attractive young blond women with a striking “almost full toothed” smile. She appears to be missing a left maxillary lateral incisor, but I wager subscribers to the newspaper are viewing a photo shopped effort.
MSPH stands for a Master of Science in Public Health. So I guess the doctor is trying to improve the mental health of patients who are so self-conscious of the dark void the missing tooth gap creates, they will miss school and hang around the house all day.
The creator of the advertisement was trying to be funny at customer’s expense by using the phrase “MITHING A Tooth”. The missing tooth induces a stutter so we now have a dentist who will help cure your speech impediment too! How could one partially defanged pass up a trip to this guy’s practice? We seem to have some proof there is not much money in General Dentistry in south eastern New Mexico.
