During April's GC Skeptics in the Pub, Michael Foley take us on a journey through the not-so-wonderful world of woo that has infiltrated dentistry. From rectal ozone gas, to tooth meridians, homeopathy and the healing power of light, Michael discusses the evidence (or lack there of) behind these holistic dentistry practices.
