The most frightening promise of October in the dental industry used to be excessive candy consumption.
Today, popular initiatives such as Kool Smiles‘ Operation Troop Treats, the largest Halloween candy buyback program by a dental provider in the United States, are chipping away at the holiday’s cavity-creating traditions one ton at a time. (Operation Troop Treats has contributed to a total of more than five tons of sweets shipped to U.S. soldiers overseas and is now in its fourth consecutive year.)
So what’s terrifying in today’s dental blogosphere? Hands down, it’s the Web Urbanists’ photo compilation of “Nine Creepy Abandoned Dentist Offices.”
From reformatories in England to clinics in Russia (the U.S. is not exempt — four of the nine selections are within our 50 states) these deserted dental operatories and offices would’ve been ideal haunts for the late “maestro of horror” Wes Craven.
Not convinced? View all nine at: http://weburbanist.com/2013/09/15/is-it-safe-nine-creepy-abandoned-dentist-offices/ and decide for yourself.
They’re hardly #tbt images of the dental practices from my childhood years, and for that I am grateful.
Let the haunting begin.
