Dd's orthodontist actually.

Apparently his son, I know he had 4 grown kids, commited suicide and then he killed himself after that.

Very tragic and shocking!

I'm sorry, that can be a very jarring thing to have someone in your life take their own life, and how terrible for that family to suffer two losses in such a manner in such a short space of time.

Actually dentists have the second highest suicide rate. They just got bumped to number 2 but where number one for years. Sorry to hear that though. It's a tragedy any time someone feels they must resort to that.

I looked them up online to see if I could find anything else about it and not long after they took their lives, his mother died! She was sick though from what I gathered in the thoughts surrounding her obituary. Very sad for that whole family!

Really? I wonder why. My dd wants to be a dentist so that concerns me!

I was going to say the same thing about the suicide rate and dentists.

that's actually the #1 profession that commits suicide from what I heard. I mean, it's a job where nobody wants to come see you, you have to stare into people's mouths all day (which isn't always bad but can be terrifying). 

That said, it's still shocking.
