Afraid of the dentist?
19 January 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

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.
