It’s getting closer to 2014 and you can pretty much guess what that means: the Obamacarepocalypse is almost upon us. Yee Haw. Preppers convinced that TEOTWAWKI (the end of the world as we know it) is imminent will be pleased that they will no longer need to add a dentist to their list of People We Would Like To Have With Us when it all hits the fan.
What can you add to your hoard instead of another mouth to feed? A home dental kit, of course! The DentiDrill comes complete with a handpiece, a curing light, a wee bit of composite, a vial of topical lidocaine, a lithium-ion battery charger, 1 tungsten steel drill head, a silicon polisher, a stainless steel dentist mirror, and the DVD tutorial.
You’d better pre-order soon, though. As soon as the FDA and other authorities get wind of this there will be an immediate shutdown of all shipments. You know how good our government is at shutdowns. Product is supposed to begin its journey to the US tomorrow if it all goes as planned, however.
Currently the DentiDrill is being marketed to moms who feel that their options are otherwise limited when it comes to taking care of their children’s teeth. Does a mother have the legal right to practice dentistry on her kids without a license? After the apocalypse comes, who cares about licenses? See, the marketers have got it ALL WRONG! You’re not scaring people away from managed healthcare, you’re inviting chaos and STUPID FEAR! I say bring it, if that’s what you want. This is only clever and useful if you’re desperate, and in the United States, trust me, we are not. At least not yet.
Curious to learn more? You’ll just have to see this video to believe it.
Still don’t believe it’s real? Just look! There’s More! DentiDrill has a Facebook page here that details design and production going back a year or so. It certainly doesn’t seem too fishy.
If you’re ready to drop $275 for one or are just trying to figure this thing out, visit DentiDrill.com and get one step closer to feeling like you’re doing the right thing for yourself and your family.
As far as me and how far I’ll go to prep for the end of civilization? I’ll probably just learn how to take out teeth. Much more practical skill, no batteries needed, just a strong stomach and hey, maybe a couple of swigs from that bottle that you were counting on your drinking buddy to bring.
Interesting Note: The DentiDrill website domain owner shares the same address as the Kentucky Dental Association. Thanks to Dr. Shad Lewis at DentalTown for this wonderful bit of sleuthing.The American Dental Association says that the KDA denies the address connection in this announcement published October 25.
THE FINAL WORD? (updated October 28, 2013) The DentiDrill isn’t real. It’s a hoax. The Dutch dental insurance company responsible for the publicity stunt probably didn’t realize that it would just make their business model seem like a joke as well.

Is this real? It can’t be. I don’t know. Please make it go away.
so many things can go wrong with this….i can’t believe people would actually want to buy this without any training especially with the anesthesia…..and just drilling freely??? people don’t know how deep to drill….not only do you not know if you took out all the decayed part of the tooth but if you hit the pulp of the tooth it’s game over…
What’s sad is that the cost of the DentiDrill is less than having two tooth-colored fillings placed by a REAL DENTIST just about anywhere in the US.
This is simply a propaganda message against Obama’s health care implementation . Pretty sad and pathetic. You’re message has FAILED. As a mother, I would never consider giving money to a “company” that advocates for NO HEALTH CARE. Your mother should be ashamed.

Is this real? I don’t know what to think about this. If you’re looking for a REAL dentist, then Rubino Dentistry – a Park Ridge dentist .
Doctor Buddy Taylor says
Dude…. How about an x- ray to diagnose thr cavity, how close to the nerve, etc. and a decent light… Add on the cost of infection control… An assistant to sterilize and keep the doctor’s operating field dry… His or her TRAINING… The bonding material, the restorative material, the toilet. Of the cavity, the skill in placement, the adjustment of the bite and finish down of excess material. You are in fit a rude shock when you try this yourself…, of in your family. Dentistry is hard, exacting, craftsman like work as we say: like repairing a fine watch while someone is bleeding and spitting on it… Buddy Taylor DDS
David R. Boag, DDS says
This has been confirmed as a hoax. Keep calm.
Charles Lynn DDS says
Yea,right.. And check out the do-it-yourself lobotomy and appendectomy kits for those who could think this up, or believe it!
Douglas Bogle says
I do not agree to the point that we shall not be wanting any dentist in future. A common ma cannot be actual with its teeth and gum problems. Dentistry kit might be useful but a dentist using the kit properly would be a great achievement not a common person. recently Auckland dentists have come out with a research of having a dentistry kit using workshop for common people but at the end they were not sure whether people would be able to use the kits or not.
Tommie T says
Great commercial. In real life though don’t need to use a drill to clean out cavities. Can use a dental explorer to break into the cavity, once it is obvious. Then can use a Sugarman File to smooth out the sides. Then use a Sickle Scaler to break out the sides, if necessary, and to smooth the bottom “stalks.” Then keep debriding it with hydrogen peroxide and keep disinfecting it with iodine.
Idea is it is the infection that keeps the cavity going and getting worse. Once the debris is cleared out and the infection is stopped then you end up with a neutral condition. The cavity does not even need to get filled. Just kept clean. Then over time the tooth will gradually grow back and fill in the hole, at least a little bit.
Filling the cavity is problematic and close to impossible for a non-professional. Lots and lots of technical problems. Main one being leakage, leading to a brand new cavity. But if it is kept clean it can be left unfilled indefinitely most of the time.
Sean Spicer says
C’mon. Teeth are obsolete. Why can’t we just come up with decent prosthetic teeth that are sharper, longer and can even double as a weapon when they take all our guns away.
