My Aeswer i the Deetal Trast
Inist Prices Cut One-Half
Beginning Tomorrow, April 1 2
PAINLESS PARKER DENTISTRY
Less Than Trust Dentistry
I am going to expose the extortioa practiced on the people of Oregon by the Dental
Trust. If this Trust can raise a slush fund of $6000 every month with which to carry on
a campaign against Painless Parker, I am. going to cut off its i source of pply, hich
is in the pockets of the people, by cutting in half the price of dentistry, and thereby
stop, if possible, the contributions to this slush fund.
I can do high-class, painless dentistry at half Trust prices and make money. As long as
this Tran raise money by charging two prices for what it sells the public, it can
afford to spend part of that money to fight Painless Parker.
I propose to protect myself by depriving the Trust of its sinews of war. At the same
time I will give every man, woman and child in Oregon the opportunity to get my dentistry
at 50 plr cfnt lLs than they have been forced to pay heretofore for old-style, inferior
Trust service "
Out of every dollar spent by the people of Oregon for Trust Dentistry, a certain pro
portion goes to keep up this Trust, so it can control the dental business in this state.
One way of controlling dentistry here has been to exterminate professionally any
dentist who might give the Trust hard competition.
I know how to compete with this Ethical Combine. That way is to give the public
better dentistry at less money. . ,
Hundreds of Oregon people who have bought my dentistry since I opened my Portland
office a year ago know my dentistry is superior to any ever obtained of Trust dentists at
twice my fees
I can buy high-grade dental material, except 22k gold, cheaper than Trust dentists,
because I buy it in large quantities for all my offices, including my Portland office. I can
give better service because of my painless methods.
Every one of my associated dentists in my Portland office are fully the equal of any
Trust dentist in the state, because all of them have been licensed to practice here by the
Trust's own hand-picked board of dental examiners. If an exammation before the Trust s
board is what the Trust claims it to be, then every dentist associated yfo0
land office is fully the equal in skill, training and education of any dentist belonging to the
Dental Combine. , .
If I can do Painless Parker dentistry at half the prices charged by members of the
Trust, and make money, then certainly it is nothing short of highway robbery of the public
pocketbook for Trust dentists to charge 100 per cent more for Trust dentistry.
I came to Portland to give the public a square deal in dentistry. And I know howto do
it I intend to give this Trust a run of competition so that when I get through it wiD not
be able to raise $6000 a month, or any other sum, for a slush fund fhwK
Painless Parker. If fur rugs are selling at 13 cents a gross the Trust will not be able to
buy one hair.
