“If you were willing to disregard prior plausibility entirely,
you could do scientific research on the Tooth Fairy.”
Dr. Harriet “SkepDoc” Hall, Col. USAF (Retired) (1945–2023)
Flight Surgeon, Family Physician, Pilot, Author
“Tooth-fairy science.” A phrase coined by Dr. Hall and one that continues to be used by skeptics everywhere in reference to medical pseudoscience, alternative therapies and health-care quackery.
This official website is dedicated to the work of Dr. Hall who will always be remembered for her tireless efforts promoting science-based medicine and critical thinking. Her legacy lives on through her writings and the countless lives she touched through her work.
