Since today is I Love My Dentist Day, we thought it would be a good time to take a look at this list of The Top Questions to Ask Yourself Before Becoming a Dentist.


  • Am I just doing this for access to nitrous oxide?
  • Is my office close enough to a wooded area that I can run outside and grab a rock if my drill breaks?
  • Will I get discreet deliveries of cash from the candy industry?
  • Am I up to date on my subscription to “Highlights” magazine?
  • How low do my grades have to be to miss out on getting into medical school?
  • Can I remember to add a stern finger wag whenever I say, “Floss more”?
  • Am I more of an easy listening dentist, or a smooth jazz dentist?
  • Should I first get work done to fix my meth mouth?
