The article presents the views of Doctor Robert Reiss, a dentist, on the decline of the dentistry profession in the U.S. Reiss said that the quality of dental care in the U.S. is declining because most dentists go into the profession without really liking it. As a result, their work is of poor quality. Reiss also discussed the costs and quality of dental education, the nationalization of dental care and the dental care policy of the Teamsters Union. Reiss also reflected on the future of the dentistry profession and dental care in the U.S.
