eady Growth for Seven
ears ; Indicates I
Seven years ago Dr. barker opened his office in Salem. He had a
new idea in dentistry an idea that the public could be served better,
faster, easier and at less? cost by what has since come to be known as
group dentistry (a number of specialists practicing together under one
head) than under the old method of one man, in one office, handling all
the various branches ' of jflentistry alone.

He was a keen student and thinker as well as a good den
tist and business man. Statistics showed that 80 per cent of
the people never went j tear a ' dentist people whose health
and very life were threal end by neglect of their teeth.
. There seemed to-be three outstanding reasons for this con
dition fearjof ain--ccjst of dentistry and ignorance. Dr.
Parker believed there wis a remedy for all three, and there
was, as he has since demonstrated. Dentistry could be per
formed painlessly and he perfected a local anaesthetic that
permits working on the most sensitive tooth without pain by
simply blocking the nerve at the base of that tooth. By a
system of organization, grouping a number of specialists to
gether under one roof -with but one overhead expense, buying
supplies in large quantities and handling more patients, the
cost of good dentistry was reduced very materially. By public lectures
aid distribution of booklets on the care of teeth, by paid newspaper
space and other means of advertising, it was possible to inform the pub
lic of the necessity for the proper care of the teeth.
There were many doubting Thomases in those' days---folk who said
the idea was not practical that dentistry was a profession and to mix
business with it would ispoil. the whole scheme of. things. They even
went so far as to say advertising dentistry was a crime in fact there
are still a number of the old school who have not learned that adver
tising is the most powerful force for the development ,of the good in all
things. No service or products will stand the searchlight of publicity
if it hasn't solid worth behind it.
Like any new idea, it tdok a long time to make other dentists believe
in the E. R. Parker System. They disliked the idea of joining forces with
someone else. It took a lot of work and patience to convince them
that by associating with a successful organization they could do -more,
for their profession, the public and themselves than-they could alone.
The old idea was for a dentist to try to spread himself thin over all
the branches of dentistry. Naturally, he did some things. better than
others and just as naturally the things he didn't do well were slighted.
They did not understand the: logic of specialization as practiced in the
E. E. Parker System, Here each man was given that part of dentistry
to do which hex was best adapted and. naturally he became ; highly
skilled and efficient in jihat work. Here dentists, through !'
association, had the advantage of study and comparison' of'
work. ' . . L. 1 4 ..aJ.V.
