This Just Looks Unsafe

How long do you think Tommy stayed Dennis' best friend after only one check-up? Can you sterilize toy dental instrument? That is a blood poisoning just waiting to happen. And what kind of sick piece of dental machinery is that red thing on the left?? I just don't understand. Was there anything they didn't mold into plastic in the years following WW II? And what made Dennis, the neighborhood MENACE suddenly decide he wanted to take up dentistry, unless, of course, he is just torturing the neighborhood kids after he was done killing all their pets.

Dennis the Menace may be up there as one of my favorite comic strips, but this is just another sad reminder of just how little we knew about health in the 1950s.
