10 Reasons… Why being a dentist is great

By April 1, 2014 No Comments

So why being a dentist is great?

1. I met my husband because I’m a dentist. Sad but true, we met at dental school as our eyes met over a cup of mouth rinse. It is totally unbelievable how many of our dental student friends married other dentists, we’re obviously an insular bunch with humour that doesn’t extend much past jokes about fillings and small pricks.


2. There are few greater things as satisfying as being able to help someone with pain; maybe its the dental version of a God complex, slightly downgraded perhaps. Accepting true gratification is a pleasing feeling. That’s my Florence nightingale answer.

3. My job sometimes feels like one long coffee morning, but with a corsodyl rather than caffeine fix. Getting to know people whom I have been seeing regularly for more than 12 years and I sometimes have to remind myself I’m here for the teeth. I’m sure there are rafts of people who detest their dentist, luckily, I don’t seem to know any of them. AND I listen to the radio all day, though I have ‘upgraded’ from Radio 1 in my 20s to classic FM in my 40’s.
