There are a lot of reasons to become a dentist. You make $150,000 a year, without having to be a nerd for six years at medical school. You get an unlimited supply of laughing gas. And you can collect a celebrity roster of clients, stockpile their pulled teeth, and make your real fortune by selling them on eBay.
This latter point seems to be the secret goal of Dr. Bill Dorfman, who may have strolled across your TV set on "Extreme Makeover," "The Doctors," "Oprah" or "Larry King Live." He may be the only dentist on Facebook with his own Fan Page. At his dental practice in Los Angeles, Dorfman outfits the smiles, he claims, of "everyone from Hollywood's brightest stars to Wall Street's biggest CEOs."
