Ceiling Movies ROUT Fears of Patient (Jul, 1935)
Ceiling Movies ROUT Fears of Patient
A BOSTON dentist has discovered a new sort of “anesthetic,” in the form of motion pictures, which he claims is so effective that patients refuse to leave the chair at the conclusion of their dental work. One peculiar effect of the new “drug” is that it soothes harsh feelings against dentists. Patients no longer fear the semi-annual visit.
The movies, projected on the office ceiling, divert the patients’ attention as the doctor fixes their teeth.
Mickey Mouse and Popeye the Sailor pictures are most popular with the younger patients, according to the doctor.
