I'm missing the "sensitive teeth" thing here. This could be done for ANY dental clinic, not only those who specialize in sensitive teeth - and for that matter it is quite effective.

Also, what's with the background? Is it dust, or smoke, or what? And why?

Agreed. My first reaction was bloody gums mutilated by a dentist's drill.

I agree this is totally gross as well as creepy. It's even mildly disturbing. When I look at that image, I think of pain (number one reason people hate to go to the dentist).

My head's spinning. @_@ It gives me the idea of horror in the clinic.. or that this ad's an anti-sweets campaign.

The TG's reaction would be to flip the page as soon as they see this.

Again, I live in Vietnam and have NEVER, EVER seen this ad.

Dear other guest,
Does every ad in vietnam has to be seen by you? Do you work for Vietnam's ad censor board? I don't see every ad that comes out of my country, does that make it less legit? I think this is an interesting ad and I don't really care if you have NEVER EVER seen it.

Guest's picture

Obviously, you're a friend of one of the creatives. And it's not an interesting ad, honestly, it's pretty bad. And no, I don't live in Vietnam.

basically feeds my dentist phobia, it's pretty clear that sweets will ruin your teeth no need to advertise this as a dental clinic... you want people to go to the clinic not turn them off by triggering memories of fear and pain -.-;
