The story behind "Tibetan man in Tingri in need of dental care"

It is clear that the dental care as we know it in the west is not available in poor places like Tibet. Must have something to do with the fact that an average treatment over here costs more than one year income over there.

Anyway, this man seemed happier than many people on our side of the world with clean and shiny polished, whitened teeth. So I guess it is still what’s inside you what makes you happy.
