Dr. Duane E. Spencer, the "Snoopy Dentist," talks about his career and why there are so many images of Snoopy at his dental office.
"'In 1967, somebody gave me a greeting card for my birthday and it was just a picture of a smiling Snoopy,' said Dr. Spencer. 'In the Navy, you couldn’t decorate your treatment room. But my commanding officer did let me hang that card from a string. And it really worked with the kids because we didn’t have nitrous oxide and the things we have now.'"The WalnutCreekPatch.com article is by By Katie M. Ziegler.
