Would the public fare out better restricting public school dental inspections where the possibility of a dentist scratching the enamel layer of the tooth below the gum line could increase the dental business months later or do we trust the programs on our children?

I totally agree with your point we should always have a clear picture of what all we are going to face while the treatment and how they are going to proceed with it as it helps you gain some confidence in your dentist and you could trust him with the treatment. I really like the dentists like the one i met in http://www.ldsc.co.uk/ who themselves takes the initiative of briefing you with each and every step of the treatment before initiating the treatment.

Hot dental hygienists, dental technicians and dental assistants are a must. Along with cute secretarial staff. It is fun having those hygienist's utters rubbing on you while you have to maneuver you engorging rod to keep from embarrassing yourself.

Absolutely. At my office we take every recommendation to ensure the safety and comfort of our patients ( http://doctorrossandgreer.com ). You should always look around and ask plenty of questions, a reputable dentist won't mind answering them!
