I have been wanting to see a thread about this subject for some time now.
Why? Two dentists in my family. So as you can imagine, dental health (or lack thereof) is a subject that is discussed regularly within my family I actually got one of my dentist relatives to look at that god-awful tape where the British guy is interviewing L. Ron Hubbard on the boat. Hubbard is smiling a lot in the video. And the videographer just loves zooming in on L. Ron's mouth. Dear God!
My dentist relative's reaction to the video: "Oy! Had to have been very painful at times; probably no longer very painful at the time of this video. They stink and the danger is infection that goes systemic. If the patient doesn't get a massive infection, eventually the teeth just fall out of the mouth." (Because the roots eventually die and resorb.)
I've read several references to L. Ron's horrible bad breath. Which would be from the rotted teeth, no doubt.
I also think I read a reference along the way that L.Ron did visit a dentist at some point, who administered nitrous oxide (laughing gas). But I can no longer find that reference.
Anyone who can add info to "L. Ron's teeth"?
I never was a scientologist. My wife and I have been watching Leah remini show about Scientology.
Anyhow, we saw some photos of Ron l Hubbard and noticed his teeth. We both agreed it is from beetlenut. If you are unfamiliar it is a bad habit that Micronesians have were they take this nut from a specific tree and wrap it in a leaf with caustic lime. It is a stimulant and very addictive. Users look like there mouth is bloody and they spit everywhere. Users teeth eventually fall out but if you quit your teeth will look a little less bloody like mr hubbards teeth. This all ties into some other info I have for you guys. I live in Hawaii and travel all the time. Many years ago I flew on the air Micronesia flight offered by continental. It was the only air service offered to travel through micro. It lands on every island and then returns. Well we flew past one island and I was wondering why so I asked the flight attendent and she said we don't stop there, it's owned by scientologist. This is where Ron could have picked up the beetlenut habit. I tried to look up info on this island but I can't find anything but a Scientology domain name out of Micronesia.
Well, I just signed up to contribute this insight to you guys so y'all can better understand this cult
You guys should find out the name of this island. The flight I was on is the only one servicing Micronesia at the time. That means that this secret island was only accessible by boat. I find it interesting that the scientologist were Mariners. What happens at this island? Who was the governing force? Are there scientologist being held there against their will?
How about you make a thread from your last post!
May be a few old timers would recall something eventually.
It's a very interesting story to dig on Google
Thank you and warm welcome on the board.
There are several non-scientologists members who contribute to the board , and they are never to leave
The Psychopath Test: A Journey Through the Madness Industry By Jon Ronson
“This is where Ron had his Coca-Cola machine,” explained Bob. He smiled. “Ron loved Coca-Cola. He drank it all the time.

What most people don't realize how very important the video of Ron's rotten teeth is to rock history. Blue Oyster Cult was researching their new song - "Don't Fear the Dentist" was it's original name, and the idea was inspired by watching that video of LRH on the Apollo, but unable to get rights to use the video as part of their music video, they were forced to change the lyrics...Does coca-cola can makes such tooth decay ????
Can it be a combination of Cola, smoking and may be used od drugs ????
I knew of some people who drank coca-cola all their life and their teeth didn't came so bad as Ron's teeth!
