Thats not a Glasgow smile, thats just a non NHS Dentist.

No, it's definitely an NHS dentist mate, given some of the crap I've seen /endured from dentists of that ilk...  :huh:

 

Not sure about the Glasgow bit either, all that razor gang bollocks has been massively overhyped since the 1930s with the publication of No Mean City. Glesca wasn't/isn't any worse than lots of other places in the UK (Peaky Blinders anyone?), it's just that the Oatmeal Ethnics like to tell everyone it is worse than everywhere else as a form of reverse snobbery. :rolleyes:

Anecdotally or statistically?

What the daughter of former POTUS has to do with this? Ms. Clinton has not so wide a mouth, after all.

I dunno, I had a good experience with them. When I was a child I had to have 5 teeth out so the orthodontist could straighten them with what seemed about 7 miles of copper wire

 

Which explains your posting style on TN.... :D ;) hehehehe

Anecdotally and from idly dipping into official studies/social history/sociology/criminology stuff. Glasgow also looks worse because of its geographic and contextual isolation; if you put it alongside other places with large concentrations of industrial manual workers or more recently the "undeserving poor" its uniqueness largely disappears. The razor gang thing is a salient example. Weegie folklore would have you believe that was a specifically Glasgow phenomenon between the wars whereas it cropped up all over the place and not just in very large cities.  Sheffield had to form a special police task force to quell their local example IIRC, and even relatively small places like Loughborough suffered routine violent disorder and indeed still do to an extent. About the only thing arguably unique to Glasgow in this regard (and elsewhere in Scotland to a more or lesser extent)  is the religious sectarianism.   :)

A pretty horrible experience in your early teens, the only thing that made it bearable was the incredibly nice people at Cheltenham hospital.

 

Then Tony Blair screwed up all the funding and its never worked properly since. Hey ho.

 

I entirely agree about Birmingham gangs actually. Mind you even the Newcastle gangs were reputed to be the only people to tell the Krays to piss off back home.

Ah, I was talking about general dental practitioners rather than the hospital based variety, which I've found to be rather different animals. Ref the second bit, as I said to Anixtu, not just big places like Brum or Newcsull, it was a countrywide phenomenon but has been largely swept under the carpet as it only affected the areas where rough people live. Personally I think the return of all those lads from service in the First World War has a lot to do with it too.

Ah you should have seen with my buck teeth Tomas. I looked just like Austin Powers, about 13 years before it became fashionable. :D

 

I was told it took about £3000  worth of operations and surgery to fix. No way my parents could have afforded that, so I tend to get the NHS a big get out of jail free card as a result.

Yeah Baby! And mate, it's never, ever been fashionable to look like that outside the West Country, Just saying like.  ;)  :)

I wouldn't try to argue any unique problems for Glasgow, but when you start to (idly and inexpertly) look at the extent and depth of Glasgow's problems you come across stuff like the "Glasgow effect" and meeja stories placing it as the murder capital of the UK, knife crime capital of Europe, etc.

 

Having lived in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Liverpool I'm OK for anecdotes but wondered if you had any good leads on the statistics.

When I was in my 20's I used to go to this dental clinic that had a female dentist. She was a plain Jane in appearance but definitely not ugly. She's just a typical Singapore girl that is well-educated but had no clue about how to get the right hairstyle, glasses, clothes etc.

 

Anyway, throughout the entire time she worked on my teeth, her tits would be pushed against my head. I have been to several other female dentists before and since, and all are very conscious about where not to put their tits when working on male patients.
