Well, those are 22 dental jokes that you can share with your dentist. Your dentist has probably heard some of them, but many of those jokes are original jokes.
Either way, your dentist has a difficult job and hearing a joke from a patient may make his or her day. Plus, you don’t want the person extracting your tooth to be in a bad mood.
That might be painful.
Jokes can also alleviate some of the anxiety you experience before hearing the seven scariest words in the English language. “We have to extract that bad tooth.”
Honestly, though, the dentist is there to help you and not to scare you. Sure, sometimes it might hurt a bit or be uncomfortable. The dentist might also look scary because they wear a surgeon’s mask, wear scrubs, have drills, and have scalpels. To be fair, they look like a character out of horror movie.
They then will rip out your teeth. It certainly can be interpreted as a scene from a horror movie.
However, they aren’t doing this to scare you,and they aren’t acting out a scene from a Saw movie. Their goal is to make your teeth look better, which will make you feel better.
All in all, don’t be scared of the dentist. They want to help you, not hurt you. Once you leave, you will feel so much better when you look in the mirror that you realize the whole experience was worth the hassle.
Plus, you get to overcome your fear. Who doesn’t like doing that?
