A little dental follow-up

Following MatGB's post—and I'd like to thank him for his sterling work in keeping The Kitchen hot—about NHS dentists, I would like to draw your attention to this little article which my father found in his Telegraph one morning (you see, as Angel's Cafe pointed out, I get everything from Daddy, darling).

Apparently, it was a bit like finding a turd in his cornflakes.

I cannot find thhe article online, although I did find this one, so here it is in all its gleaming, brown glory...

Well, this can, surely, only be a good thing; perhaps they are upping the pay rates for dentists in order to encourage more to take on NHS work?

Puppets at the Information Center: [singing]
Welcome to Duloc
Such a perfect town
Here we have some rules
Let us lay them down
Don't make waves
Stay in line

Shine your shoes
Wipe your... FACE.
Duloc is, Duloc is
Duloc is a perfect... place.

But what makes me shudder so...?
