According to MSN, the dentist in the photograph is Dr. Paul Weiss, a pediatric dentist from Williamsville, N.Y. Weiss has reportedly trained his 4-year-old Golden Retriever, Brooke, to act as a "therapy dog to calm his young patients."

“The gratification of taking a nervous child and turning them into someone who’s comfortable at a dentist’s office is really something great,” Weiss was quoted in Buffalo Business First earlier this year.
As far as Brooke’s doggie demands go, she has a pretty easy work schedule, only coming into the office on Thursdays and providing services on an as-needed basis. Now, that’s a dog’s life!
