Friday at last!

Friday! Finally! I had a crazy week. Too much work. I'm thinking about changing my profession. Did you know that dentists have the highest suicide rate among the health care providers? It's a very demanding job. We have to deal everyday, with lots of complains from frighten patients. And in the end all the success and failure are your responsibility. The patients don't care if they don't have a good hygiene. It's never their fall. So, I think I can say this is a very stressful job. I took this photo in one of my "Zen moments". You can see the river (Douro), the Atlantic Ocean, and the south border of the city. Happy weekend everybody!


  1. Hahahaha... but sometimes dentists can be really mean to their patients (not that you are like that, I'm sure you are not)! You simply have to build trust with your patients.

  2. Hi Cristóbal! You're right. But the problem is this. If you go to a dermatologist, with skin complains, the doctor will prescribe you some drug. If the treatment fails, you and your doctor, will put the blame on the drug, and try a different one. This is how it works for every other medical speciality.
