Two comments from a lurker:

(1) dentists ARE doctors (the usage is almost universal, but is simply
misleading)---the phrase should probably be dentists and physicians; and

(2) on the subject of telemarketers, the easiest way I've found to bring a
telemarketer's call to a halt is to request that my name be deleted from
their list---a request the law supports. The telemarketers have invariably
stopped their spiels immediately and said they would and that it would take
some specific amount of time, usually 2-5 weeks. End of conversation.
