|Dr. Fenner MD, retired in the 1970's after an investigation of anesthesia methods. Fenner swore by the Dr. Howard, Dr. Fine, Dr. Howard method. Dr. Coots DDS, retired after his method of tooth extraction, which entailed a handkercheif and a distraction (and the fact that he only got the correct tooth 60% of the time), came under scrutiny with the modern patient. Both doctors are now in their 90's, and they have agreed (as part of a plea bargain) to come aboard the McCarty Metro and answer reader questions with their old-fashioned, no nonsense approach. Feel free to send your questions because...|

|Dear Dr. Fenner:|
Is dieting good for you? -Bob Phillips
My weight is my shepherd;
I shall not want low-calorie foods.
It maketh me to munch on chips and bean dip;
It leadeth me into 31 flavors;
It restoreth my soul food;
It leadeth me in the paths of cream puffs in bakeries.
Yea, though I waddle through the valley of weight watchers,
I will fear no skimmed milk;
My appetite is with me;
My 'Twinkies' and Ding Dongs,' they comfort me;
They annoiteth my body with calories;
My scale tippeth over!
Surely chubbiness and contentment shall follow me
All the days of my life.
And I shall dwell in the house of Hostess forever!
| ||Dear. Dr. Coots:|
I have yellow teeth, what do I do? -Dave
Wear a brown tie.
|A (very) Little Dental Humor From Dr. Coots...|
Why didn't the dentist ask his secretary out?...He was already taking out a tooth
Dentist says to the patient: Could you help me? Could you give out a few of your loudest, most painful screams?
Patient: Why? Doc, it isn't all that bad this time.
Dentist: There are so many people in the waiting room right now and I don't want to miss the 7 o'clock tennis game.
