No balloons on the cover

Love your magazine - hate the covers. Last month`s artwork (September 1995) depicting five out-of-focus balloons complete with male faces did little to invite me to peek inside. The face on the green balloon reminded me how I feel after eight hours of battling inflamed gingiva, copious saliva, and an employer who thinks paper towels are a luxury.

Dear RDH,

Love your magazine - hate the covers. Last month`s artwork (September 1995) depicting five out-of-focus balloons complete with male faces did little to invite me to peek inside. The face on the green balloon reminded me how I feel after eight hours of battling inflamed gingiva, copious saliva, and an employer who thinks paper towels are a luxury.

I would rather see smiling color photos of actual patients (preferably children) who brighten up our days with their optimism and innocent acceptance of one-minute fluorides. Even photos of hygienists in their operatories, hard at work, would interest me.

So, please, no more balloons.
