    Crazy! Was he really the one?

    I promise never to do that to anyone! At least I will try my best to find a person of integrity to take over my practice!

    Yes Linea, unfortunately so. It might help explain some of the mess you see when I’m in your chair.

    That is interesting. Marvin also went to him and so did I. He did very good work, and another dentist commented on it when he checked Marvin’s mouth!

    I know one can do very good technical work and at the same time be unethical. I believe that was his downfall. Sometimes people get greedy. This is neither the first or last case of a person’s greed, or dishonesty or whatever weakness they succumb to, destroying them. It really is very sad.
