Editor: I picked up a copy of Jan. 20-26 Beacon to read a story about the program I’m heading called “Give Kids a Smile.” This article appeared on the second page of the Showcase section and I appreciate your coverage on our event. What caught my eye was what I saw on the front page of the same section. “Chronic Infections of the Jaw Bone” was given a half page and spoke about “holes in bone” that needed to be “surgically removed.”
I am amazed that your publication would print such nonsense and cause unnecessary concern to your readers.
Is it your practice to print such topics that are this controversial just on the word of the health professional?
If Dr. Alfred Choi’s facts can be backed up with sound, clinical research then I will be more than happy to learn about his treatment techniques. If he can’t and your paper continues to print articles of this nature, I will no longer read your publication and inform my patients not to do so either.
