Dentistry as Air-Conditioning

  • Blog

By Dr D. Weiss

Dentistry is to global health what air conditioning is to global warming. Is air-con good or bad? Depends on the perspective. Air-con alleviates discomfort and is very helpful for individuals. From a climatic point of view – it’s bad. Cools you down while heating up the environment.

Same with dentistry – alleviates problems for individuals but impacts negatively on disease. To say clinical dentistry is the solution to oral diseases is like saying airconditioning is the solution to global warming.
