If we know of a dentist who misbehaves, will we also misbehave?

So finding this farewell article for Kenneth Boudreaux was a pleasant surprise while recently culling journalistic references to the dental hygiene profession.…

You're not going to believe this, but I visited your MySpace page for a second the other day. I clicked on the link in Kevin's forum discussion "Are you on Facebook? MySpace...". I was scanning through your answers to the questions and noticed that Kevin and I were the last people to have made you laugh. Good to know! :-)
