The sound of a dentist's drill may send a shiver up your spine, but there are bigger problems in the world of dentistry than the patient's nerves while sitting in the chair. We examine why there's a shortage of dentists in our region, and how that impacts our ability to get regular dental care.  Our guests include Peter Taylor, the Executive Director of the Vermont State Dental Society, and we also hear from St. Johnsbury dentist Dr. David McLean. Listen

Also, we talk with Dr. Robert E Simpson, Jr., president and chief executive officer of the Brattleboro Retreat, to learn why the organization has expanded its addiction and recovery programs to focus on niche segments of our population. Listen
