Per the OD: Dentists sink their teeth into new dental program for children .
A child sits in the dentist's chair when ...
a magician walked into the room and showed Thomas how he can turn a red ball black and how to turn torn up paper into a solid piece of paper.Children don't need to be entertained to go to the dentist . . . and taking care of teeth is the family's responsibility ... not the state's.
A smile then came across the youngster’s face when asked again whether he liked going to the dentist. . . .
The program was made possible part of a Preventative Dentistry grant given to Faxton-St. Luke’s from the New York State Department of Health.
The state should take care of its own responsibilities... not ours... Take a bite out of the state budget (and get the government out of our hair) by eliminating such nanny programs.
