Friday Wisdom – Dentist

This week I broke a tooth and am now scheduled to get a crown. Sadly, now a crown I can wear on my head – just one of those tiny ones they put on teeth that no one wants to look at. So that means I get to tell you everything I know about dentists …

I knew a dentist who didn’t like tea so we just called him Denis.

I read about the dentist of the year award. The winner got a little plaque.

My father always referred to the dentist’s office as the “Filling Station.”

Sad news about the Tooth Fairy. She had to go to counseling because she stopped believing in herself.

According to a recent study, most people call the dentist at tooth-hurty p.m.

I had to take my cellphone to the dentist. Well, it had bluetooth.

My dentist told me that I need to put my money where my mouth is.

At first I didn’t like my dentist when she said I needed a root canal, but during the procedure she made a good impression.

My dentist started his career in the Army. Yup, he was a drill sergeant.

They don’t call them x-rays any more – nope, they’re now know as tooth-pics.

I didn’t realize that my friend had a false tooth until it came out in conversation.

I have my dentist appointment for next week, but it’s okay – I know the drill.

  2. When I was preggo with Joe, my dentist asked what I was going to name him. He then told me that some high percentage of dentists were named Dennis. I guess lots of people with that name thought it would be fun to tell people they were Dennis the Dentist.

  3. I feel slightly guilty laughing as a result of your misfortune (but these jokes were hilarious). πŸ™‚ I hope your crown procedure goes well!

  5. Funny but true regarding this one: put your money where your mouth is. There’s been a lot of money put it my mouth unfortunately, but I now do have a great dentist. Another funny, as in coincidence, about your jokes. My hubby’s dentist really WAS an Army dentist! But he was a Colonel not a drill sergeant. πŸ˜‰

  6. Dentists aren’t fun. :/ Thank you for the smiles. I needed them. I was feeling a little down in the mouth this week. I hope the crown procedure is ‘without incident.’ I have had to have several. Have a great week.

    Yes,I enjoyed those, as always. Talking of “Put your money where your mouth is”, being a dentist over here really is like a licence to print money. I presume it’s the same in the USA.
