Google's live-in dentist

tooth_logo.gifWe discovered in the comments on this post that Google now has a full-time, on-site dentist. "Full-time" as in he lives at the Googleplex, "in a little apartment right next door to my office." Not surprisingly as a Google employee, Dr. Sam Gustard is tech-savvy. He attended Web 2.0, has his own blog and is apparently a discriminating reader of certain Silicon Valley tech blogs.

UPDATE: This isn't true. See this post for an update.

Please Matt! Just Stop! Stop being the personal PR firm for Google.com. There are other great companies down in the valley but we wouldn't know of them because of your lust for Google.

Yep, it's definitely a hoax. Among other clues, consider that the Googleplex isn't zoned residential and no one at Google lives at the Googleplex.

You might want to call Google to confirm that he is not associated with the company and issue a retraction.

Well, while there is no actual live-on Dentist at Google, they do have dentistry available on their campus. Onsite Dental is there every week on Thursdays.

They're also on a bunch of other companies like Yahoo, Cisco, eBay, and Oracle. I've used'm a few times, really convenient and pretty good.
