There Is Humor In Medicine And Dentistry!  Enjoy!

Dental humor is priceless, as is child and senior citizen humor. Good humor does not need to be explained. It is obvious and should produce spontaneous laughter.

If a joke needs to be explained or dissected, it dies. Humor is designed to amuse the listener. It is a social event. The really funny stuff requires another person to be present because the smiles and laughter are human interactive traits.

The following stories and jokes are not new. They have all been around for years. Many are known to have a slightly different version.

Dentistry is serious and it involves hard work, but that doesn't mean that there is not a light or humorous side to it. Read on and I hope it provides, at least, a chuckle.

The Dentist And The Tooth Fairy and More!

A rich dentist, a poor dentist, and the Tooth Fairy were walking down the road together.

They walked past an ATM machine and noticed $1,000 on the ground. There was nobody else around, so one of them decided to take the money. Who took it?

The rich dentist ... the other two don't exist.


Dentist to patient: "Could you help me? Could you give out a few of your loudest, most painful screams?"

Patient: "Why doctor?"

Dentist: "There are so many people in the waiting room right now and I don't want miss my 7 o'clock tennis game."


Patient: "Doctor, I am very nervous. You know, this is my first extraction."

Young Dentist: "Don't worry, it's my first extraction too."


A guy goes to visit his grandmother and he brings his friend with him. While he's talking to his grandmother, his friend starts eating the peanuts in a dish on the coffee table - and finishes them off.

As they're leaving, his friend says to the grandmother, "Thanks for the peanuts." She says, "Yeah, since I lost my dentures I can only suck the chocolate off'em."


A young man saw an elderly couple sitting down to lunch at McDonald's. He noticed that they had ordered one meal, and an extra drink cup. As he watched, the gentleman carefully divided the hamburger in half, then counted out the fries, one for him, one for her, until each had half of them.

Then he poured half of the soft drink into the extra cup and set that in front of his wife. The old man then began to eat, and his wife sat watching, with her hands folded in her lap.

The young man decided to ask if they would allow him to purchase another meal for them so that they didn't have to split theirs. 

The old gentleman said, "Oh no. We've been married 50 years, and everything has always been and will always be shared, 50/50." 

The young man then asked the wife if she was going to eat, and she replied... "Not yet...It's his turn with the teeth!"


Mother: "Has your tooth stopped hurting yet?"

Son: "I don't know. The dentist kept it."


"I would like to see a woman dentist," said the first man.

"Why?" asked his friend.

Because it would be a pleasure to have a woman say, open your mouth instead of shut up.  


A woman and her husband interrupted their vacation to go to the dentist. "I want a tooth pulled, and I don't want any Novacaine because I'm in a big hurry," the woman said.

"Just extract the tooth as quickly as possible, and we'll be on our way."

The dentist was impressed with her bravery. "You're certainly a courageous woman," he said. "Which tooth is it?"

The woman turned to her husband and said, "Show him your tooth, dear."
