Ethics of Patient Advertisement

I don't know what the ethics are concerning physician advertisements that use past successes with patients to attract new patients but I assume that Senator Coleman's office must know.  His cosmetic dentist, Dr. Milnar has run an ad on his website that shows Senator Coleman's teeth in a before and after format.  Before1 After1_1

Rawstory has a further article discussing the Senator's new smile and the dentist.  According to that website, there may have been some mistakes made in the use of the Senator's photo for commercial purposes as well as some other issues involving the Senator's payment for the dentistry.

Quite frankly, I may be a bit biased but I think that my son has the after picture beat.[bm]

Those before and after pictures are always funny. The after is always some weird glamour shot. And what the heck is "Advanced Smile Health"?
No question Luke has the best smile here!
