I was a cosmetic dentistry office today (not for me), and in the waiting room I noticed a table offering coffee and fresh baked, individually wrapped chocolate chip cookies. Surely they must be sugar free, right? Unable to resist, I tried a cookie and bit. Hard.
Not only was it a regular sugary cookie, it was rock solid. Why would a dentist serve items that can stain, chip, and cause cavities in teeth? Then I remembered: this wasn't a regular dentist at all. Cosmetic dentists are different; they're looking for repeat business.
