Dia Mundial dos Dentistas
(International Dentist Day). This day is somewhat confusing, since it is not a day proclaimed by the United Nations or by the International Dentist Federation. In the United States, Dentist’s Day is on 6 March. Other sources mention 9 February, while the United Nations have introduced World Oral Health Day on 12 September. In Brazil, Dentist’s Day is on 25 October. The day of 3 October is chosen, because the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery started on 3 October 1840. The profession of the dentist is highly estimated, since we all know the results of the efforts of a dentist to provide us bright and regular denture. WHO data show that between 60-90 percent of children worldwide have (had) caries.
“Aqui, muito ciso e pouco riso”..
“Sorria sempre. Sorria mesmo que seu sorriso seja triste, pois pior que um sorriso triste é a tristeza de não saber sorrir, por isso sorria sempre.”

Student José Guimarães (20) died in the clashes between students of USP and Mackenzie, in São Paulo.
While Brazil was suffering during from the dictatorial government, there were serious clashes between students of two different universities in São Paulo. The leftist students of USP against the rightist students of the Mackenzie University. Late sixties, there were regular armed conflicts, in which violence was commonplace. The fighting students made use of home-made bombs and even firearms. During one of these violent clashes, one student was hit in the head by a bullet. He died one day later. At that time, the governor of the state of São Paulo, fearing escalations, provided false data in relation to the funeral and implemented censorship of the investigations. The conflict now is known as “Batalha da Maria Antônia”, referring to the street in the city center, where the dramatic conflict occurred.
