Late last year, Dentaltown founder Dr. Howard Farran shared a video on LinkedIn that, at first, I thought was fake. There’s no way someone could have that much calculus in their mouth, I said as the video showed dental pros chipping and scaling away at masses that dwarfed the patient’s actual teeth.
But I’m an editor, not a dentist, so I perused the comments from dental professionals and was horrified to discover that the situation was indeed real. Our clinical director, Dr. Tom Giacobbi, confirmed that at some point in their practice, most dentists have had at least one patient present with a mouth that shocks instead of awes.
Which inspired this contest: On Dentaltown’s message boards, we asked Townies to submit photos of the most challenging mouths they’d ever treated. From the more than 75 posts, we selected eight cases to vie for
top honors in the “My Worst Mouth” Contest.
To see the entries and cast your vote, click the button below before midnight PST Feb. 12 and select the case you think should win the Townie a cash prize. We’ll announce the winner in our March issue of Dentaltown magazine.
