Being a dentist requires hard work, patience, and is no laughing matter. However, dentistry, being the serious profession it is, needs a chuckle, here and there, to keeps things moving. Don’t forget, we all need to laugh out openly, every now and then, to showcase our perfect set of pearly whites.
Here are some of the best dental jokes sure to make you roar with laughter. If you’ve sat in the dental chair, or are a dentist yourself, these jokes are bound to crack you up.
You may have heard some of these before, but they will never fail to delight you.
Sara is sitting comfortably on the dental chair and showing the dentist her front teeth, which have been horribly fractured.
After discussing the dental surgery that she will have to undergo, and the fee for the treatment, Sara politely inquires, ‘Before you start, Doctor, I have to know whether I’ll be able to play the clarinet after the surgery.’
The dentist smiles and, in a confident voice, assures his patient, ‘Definitely! You will!’
Sara’s face brightens up,’ Wow! It’s just amazing what a dental surgery can do; I couldn’t play a note before!’
“Open wider,” the dentist politely, requests his patient.
The patient obliges.
As he begins to examine her mouth, he exclaims, “Good Lord! You’ve got the biggest cavity I’ve ever seen in my life…. I’ve ever seen in my life… I’ve ever seen in my life…”
“Okay, Doctor,” the patient stammers, “I’m scared enough, already, without having you repeat that thrice” ”I didn’t repeat anything,” the dentist shrugs his shoulders casually, “that was the echo.”
The 20-Dollar Treatment
George’s mother is on the telephone talking to her son’s dentist.
“I don’t really understand,” she complains over the phone, “I thought you told me the treatment would only cost 20 dollars, but you’ve actually charged me 80 dollars.”
“It usually is for 20 dollars, ma’am,” replies the dentist, “but George yelled so loudly during the dental filling, that three of my other patients ran away!”
David is having lunch at a restaurant when an elderly couple takes a seat at the table right in front of him. They beckon the waiter and order a cheeseburger and a drink. They ask the waiter to bring an extra empty cup, with the meal. As their food arrives, David watches them closely.
The old man carefully divides the burger in two equal halves, and pours half of the drink into the extra cup.
He sets the woman’s share of the meal in front of her, before proceeding to eat his share. The old woman sits idly on her seat, with her arms folded, while the man continues to eat.
Having had to face financial constraints himself, David feels sympathetic for the elderly couple. He gets up from his seat, goes to their table, and offers to buy them another meal.
“That’s very considerate of you,” the old man smiles at David, “but we’re absolutely fine. At this age we don’t eat that much, so half a meal is just enough for us.”
“But why aren’t you eating?” David turns to the old woman.
“Oh! I’ll eat after he’s finished,” she says, “it’s his turn with the teeth!”
