Dentists Say McCain Would Be Better for Dentistry

McCain More Dentist-Friendly Than Obama (Survey)

In this survey, we asked dentists which presidential candidate would be better for dentistry. Dentists trend Republican, and the outcome of this poll was no exception.

Two out of three dentists surveyed said John McCain would be a better president for dentists. One in six favored Obama, and the remaining one in six said there would be no difference between the two.

Because of his sensational smile, Obama would give cosmetic dentistry a boost by being President,” said a Georgia dentist.

Here are some additional comments from dentists:

  • “Due to higher taxes by Obama, there will be less money to spend on dentistry.” (Louisiana dentist)
  • “God forbid Obama gets in… socialized healthcare, here we come!!” (Arizona dentist)
  • “Obama is a classic Robin Hood Democrat: Tax the people who work to create wealth, and redistribute it to the masses who don’t.” (Florida dentist)
  • “An Obama presidency would be better for the country, and therefore better for dentists.” (California orthodontist)
  • “The last thing I need is higher taxes.” (California periodontist)
  • “Truly, neither one will be good, since the Democrats in Congress will call the
    shots and ram healthcare down our throats.” (New York dentist)

The Role of Gender

Gender played a major role in a dentist’s political opinion. The average male dentist is this survey favored the Republican party, while the average female dentist leaned toward the Democrats.

Here’s a sampling of what dentists had to say on this year’s election:

Democrats look like Socialists

  • “Clear choice between the Democrats (aka Socialists) and McCain.” (Republican dentist)
  • “We need to pull away from the forces of socialism in our country. Let’s be smart and close our borders before we meld into a socialistic country and loose all control of what we are and what we stand for!” (Republican dentist)

Republicans have made a mess of things

  • “Look at the country eight years ago: budget surplus, friends around the world, gas and bread prices affordable. Do we want, or can we stand, four more years of this kind of management?” (Democrat dentist)
  • “The republicans are criminals who would like this country run as the Nazis would have.” (Democrat dentist)

Sometimes, all Republicans can do is pray

  • “Dear God, Have mercy on us!” (Republican dentist)
  • “God, please don’t let the Democrat win!” (Republican dentist)

Time for a change?

  • “The ‘change’ mantra sounds nice, but will cost you individually a whole lot more than common sense would. Common sense, that would be the REAL change.” (Republican periodontist)

The war on terror

  • “The Democrats are dissociated from reality. The only issue of import is the war against Islamic Fascism. If you watch their debates, it is a non-issue.” (Republican pediatric dentist)

Are elections always between the lesser of two evils?

  • “I’m not happy with ANY of the candidates for president. It seems to me the choice will be between worse and worst!” (Republican oral surgeon)
  • “It stinks. I’ll hold my nose and vote for McCain.” (Republican dentist)
  • “Obama sounds like a man shouting promises. Clinton belongs in jail. That leaves McCain.” (Republican dentist)

Clinton carries negative connotations

  • “We need Obama to get away from all the negativity that Clinton irrationally evokes in people. He can also lead us through these troubled times better than she can.” (Democratic dentist preferring Barack Obama)

Support for Clinton

  • “Hillary is the salvation of our country.” (Democratic dentist preferring Hillary Clinton)
  • “Two heads are better than one – Hillary and Bill.” (Democratic dentist preferring Hillary Clinton)

Romney’s Teeth Win in Dental Landslide

Presidential Election: Candidates with the Best TeethIn this survey, we asked dentists which presidential candidate has the best teeth. And the winner was clear: Mitt Romney received just over 50% of the vote!

It’s worth noting that Romney also did well in our recent political survey of dentists. Though the two surveys asked very different questions, answers to both surveys were markedly similar.

Gender played a clear role in a dentist’s analysis of candidates’ smiles. Male dentist were overwhelmingly in favor of Mitt Romney (61%), but female dentists did not agree. Women dentist preferred Hillary Clinton’s smile (39%) and Barack Obama’s (26%) over Romney’ (22%).

Geographic location was also correlated dentists’ opinions. Rural dentists are almost twice as likely as urban dentists to choose Mitt Romney’s smile. On the other hand, urban dentists were more than twice as likely to prefer Hillary Clinton’s.

  • “Barack Obama has beautiful smile. He is just blessed with good genetics. His teeth appear to be aligned in an almost ideal Angles Class I occlusion. From a dental esthetic standpoint, the other presidential candidates don’t have a chance.” (Illinois dentist)
  • “I like Barack Obama’s teeth; they appear natural. Romney’s look nice, too. I’m guessing they are laminates or crowns.” (Tennessee dentist)
  • “Even Mitt Romney’s smile line fits his face. Plus, he doesn’t try to smile too big.” (Virginia dentist)
  • “Hillary Clinton has the best overall smile, well-proportioned with her facial features.” (Wisconsin dentist)
  • “I would have to say Barack Obama. Yes, it’s sad, but true: the worst possible choice for President has the best smile!” (Arkansas dentist)
