    Dentists Who've Only Ever Killed Plaque Are Tired Of Being Associated With Cecil The Lion's Killer

    They're not all lion-killers. Don't be an anti-dentite.

    In reality, four out of five dentists have never killed an animal.

    Plus, most of us haven't even seen a lion, let alone hunted one! Except for Rick, but he used to work at a zoo, so that's not even fair.

    If we did ever met a lion, we would pet its head gently and let it pick a ten-cent toy out of the treasure chest.
