I'm not a dentist but I've talked with a number about the subject. They 
have mentioned: the standing hunched over, the need for very steady 
hands, the physical contortions necessary to do the job, and problems 
with dental insurance.

They seem like a fairly content group. Statistics are tricky things.

But your post led to your fascinating website. I have a Retina I and a 
Zeiss Ikon Super Ikonta B and have always regretting passing up a Retina 
IIIC in the distant past.

And why do film snobs eschew Kodak film, execpt for Tri-X?
