Have you been to the dentist?

The sound of a dentist’s drill may send a shiver up your
spine, but there are bigger problems in the world of dentistry than the
patient’s nerves while sitting in the chair. We examine why there’s a shortage
of dentists in our region, and how that impacts our ability to get regular
dental care.  Our guests include Peter Taylor, the Executive Director of the Vermont State Dental Society, and we also
hear from St. Johnsbury dentist Dr. David McLean. Listen

Also, we talk with Dr. Robert E Simpson, Jr., president and
chief executive officer of the Brattleboro Retreat, to learn why the organization
has expanded its addiction and recovery programs to focus on niche segments of
our population. Listen
