Now that I am on the dental side of seeing things, I have started to wonder something. If Hallmark was capable of making new holidays for their own benefit ( Mother's and Father's Day), then is it possible that some candy companies came up with the other holidays? Like Halloween and Valentine's are supposed to come from generations back as sacred days to honor saints. BUT... What if it is really a ploy by Cadbury's or Hershey's to make their business boom. There are certain candies out there available specifically for each holiday. 4th of July = salt water taffy, Christmas = peppermints, Easter = chocolate bunnies and jelly beans, Halloween = every kind of candy you could imagine!, and Valentines = more chocolate.
Another theory I have is that some really smart group of dentists started these sweet traditions for job security. The more sweets, the more money spent at the dentist office.
But today, I did find a new and upcoming sweet treat that is supposed to be good for you and the dentist won't get paid as much if you eat it instead of the normal sweets. Check out this link, and let me know what you think of it.
Today in the lab we have been making supply orders and also discussing the idea of possibly integrating a digital scanner or even a milling machine into our workspace. My job is to do all the research and get as much information as possible for David. He and Chevi have some ideas for what they are looking for and I need to find the best match for their criteria. I am searching high and low for all those dental lab technician blogs and chat rooms that can lead me to the holy grail of lab machines. Any comments would be greatly appreciated if you have dealt with or heard anything good about a certain machine or manufacturer.
Have a good soggy Monday.
