Which one hurts more? A toothache or a dollarache?

Lebanon defied the usual norm that dental discomfort is the most painful and damaging to the human body. The agony of the Lebanese identity has outweighed that suffering, which has been accompanied with national currency’s severe infections and the deterioration of the minimum wage… When the Lebanese reach their “final stage of suffering,” with no political brilliance to help them, they resort to dentists.

Sawt Beirut International’s team visited to the Head of Beirut’s Dentist Association, Professor Roger Rubeiz, to gather further information on the subject.

To the Lebanese, medicine has fallen to second place, and it may soon become a luxury.

We used to be afraid of the dentist because of irritating noise, has become way more afraid of it because of the dollar payment. Perhaps those in the governing chair understand our anguish, or perhaps the answer is to extract the tooth decay from the ruling chairs this time?
