Two elements are involved with The Dippy Dentist, humankind's fear of dealing with them and America getting used to being dry. The first is eternal and if one encounters a dentist like Snub Pollard one should be afraid.
Snub's a correspondence school dentist, his previous job had been in a boiler factory. On his first day on his new job he gets into a mix up with one of those bootleggers, a profession recently sprung into being. He's got himself some of that freshly made product and it has quite a kick to it. He gets several customers right away from competing dentist Gaylord Lloyd.
Some funny bits such as Pollard tossing a patient out the window in a struggle with a tooth. Today Pollard would be arrested for what he does to female patient Marie Mosquini.
I guess Hal Roach like millions of other Americans was not happy with the Great Experiment. He chose a delightful way to express his feelings.
