The specialty practice of Pediatric Dentistry was once officially known as “Pedodontics”. About twenty five or so years ago, it was deemed to be prudent to change the name, for a couple of reasons.
One was the obvious one that people were becoming more concerned at that time with crimes of pedophilia (which apparently didn’t concern anyone too much before then) and the second reason was that patients had trouble understanding the difference between Pedodontists and Podiatrists. Go figure.
Lots of dentists still call Pediatric Dentistry “Pedo”, fwiw. I don’t think it’s a practice builder, though, to use that term in your marketing.
I have had the “famed” Skyline Chili working setting up a retail store in Cincinnati. That is pretty much what it looks like a bowl full of shit. As I drove into a rusted out city that they called Cincinnati I could only ask why anyone would live there. Nothing in my 10 day stay altered that opinion, though the people were nice. The flight out was memorable, the airport was the Kentucky International Airport, I kid you not. Sat at the bar and asked for a beer, the bartender informs me it is 2 for 1 Jack Daniels day. I said sure, he proceeded to fill the better part of a beer mug with JD. I had three and barely remember the flight home to Boston.
Bostonbob, you hit the I-75 trifecta, seeing as Jack Daniel’s is the best rendition of the Tennessee version of bourbon. Don’t feel bad — nobody in or from the Commonwealth of Kentucky (including me) seems to like Skyline Chili. Must be strictly an Ohio thing. However, Cincy is a midwest/southern city that still has a heavy German-Catholic influence — not too bad overall if you know your way around.
