Meet the Mayor: Tufts Dental School

Welcome to "Meet the Mayor," a segment in which we interview local Foursquare Mayors in their natural habitats.

School of Dental Medicine, Tufts University

Rafael Quintanar

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.
