"Care to have an interesting time chatting with an otorhinolaryngologist? or perhaps you prefer the company of a trichologist? Then there are prestidigitator, pisciculturist orpomologist.
They are all job titles that sounds terribly initimidating. But they are nice and useful people, really.
Before you tie yourself in knots over the names, take the otorhinolaryngologist for instance. He is simply an ear, nose and throat, or ENT, specialist. But in medical circles he is called that 21-letter word.
There are specialists for virtually any health problem these days - so why not a specialist for hair and scalp problems? explained trichologist, Mrs Rebecca Tan of Link Hair Care Pte Ltd:"I provide a non-medical hair-care service in which I diagnose and treat people who suffer from hair loss by giving advice." With a qualified trichologist's certificate under her belt, she said: "I feel that I'm in a better position to help clients. I've found more ways of treating, instead of going for simple hair care therapy."
