This morning Marc received a lovely message from Dr. Blair Barnett of Avery Orthodontics via Facebook. We have no words to adequately describe it so have a look for yourself:
While we realize that most orthodontists are professionals and act as such, this kind of thing is becoming more and more common. This message leaves us wondering when this type of behavior became acceptable and where it will lead. Do those of you who disagree with the opinions we hold truly believe you have a right to say and do whatever you like in an attempt stop us from saying and doing what we believe is correct? Do you believe that this is building up “your profession” and giving you the moral and ethical high ground? We realize that by having contrary opinions we put ourselves in a position to be targeted and accept that but it is amazing to see some of our fellow “professionals” act like spoiled children while claiming God is on their side. The University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio must be proud to have one of their faculty so vocally defending the profession. We wonder if The Harvard School of Dental Medicine will ask this guy to come and show them how to properly educate?
P.S. If this doctor is willing to come to Dallas, we’d like to offer him a scholarship to MKS so he can see Neal Kravitz talk about professionalism…
