Welcome to "Meet the Mayor," a segment in which we interview local Foursquare Mayors in
their natural habitats.
Dental Medicine, Tufts University
What's the deal with
this statue?He's just a nice old man. He used to be a dentist here,
actually. He came back for the opening-day welcoming ceremony this past year. I
didn't get to meet him, but some people did.
Do my teeth look okay?Overall, pretty good. Just make sure you get all the debris out
from between your teeth. That'll get all the germs out, and get your gums
looking healthy and nice.
Does the government hire
dentists to implant microchips in our molars?Not that I'm aware of.
Wouldn't it be crazy if
they did?That would be a little crazy, mostly because you'd get a lot of
interference from chewing sounds. There would be a lot of footage you'd have to
go through. It'd be difficult to spy on someone if they were trying to talk and
eat at the same time.
Ever since the Combat Zone
was razed, there have been far fewer hookers in Chinatown. Good thing or bad
thing?Probably a good thing. You can get a lot of diseases in your
mouth from stuff like that.
