Strange twist in U.S. healthcare debate, polar dental plans?

Tuesday, December 15, 2009

WASHINGTON, DC. - The U.S. healthcare debate took a strange twist today as reports from north of Canada come in of a dramatic new development in the area of dental care.

Herbie D. Elf, an employee of North Pole Industries, LLC., has announced that new dentistry services will be offered by NPI as staff are re-aligned from traditional work in the toy industry to fill gaps in the  areas of dentistry, dental surgery, and orthodontics.Mr. Elf promises that services from his vast staff of diminutive dental staff will change the face of dentistry. "Our dentists may be half the size, or even only a quarter, of what you're used to, but we provide 100% off the services you expect,": continued Elf.

The American Dental Association has not issued a statement on these developments, however, a member, speaking on condition of anonymity, has said, "This whole thing smells fishy. Canadian colleagues have noted that Elf has connections with the noted con-man, "Yukon Cornelius" and the questionable leader of the Island of Misfit Toys.

The President and Congressional leaders note that any options that will cut healthcare costs need to be carefully reviewed.
