Here are some great quotes about the visit to the dentist. We have a major PR problem in our field. Many patients or prospective patients don’t view their regular dental visit as a rewarding experience, when they should.
Maintaining dental hygiene is essential and dentists are the providers of a very important service.
Here are some fascinating quotes on the subject:
“We do have a zeal for laughter in most situations, give or take a dentist.” – Joseph Heller
“This is how war starts. One day you’re living your ordinary life, you’re planning to go to a party, you’re taking your children to school, you’re making a dentist appointment. The next thing, the telephones go out, the TVs go out, there’s armed men on the street, there’s roadblocks. Your life as you know it goes into suspended animation. It stops.” – Janine di Giovanni
“All this fuss about sleeping together. For physical pleasure I’d sooner go to my dentist any day.” – Evelyn Waugh

“I think what it does is it gives me a much broader perspective than the average politician. You know, having walked in those shoes of being hungry and being homeless. The indignities of not getting health care, or waiting in the public hospital, hoping somebody will care for you. Going to sleep with a toothache because you can’t go to the dentist.” – Richard Carmona
“Happiness is your dentist telling you it won’t hurt and then having him catch his hand in the drill.” – Johnny Carson
“Now, most dentist’s chairs go up and down, don’t they? The one I was in went back and forward. I thought “This is unusual.” And the dentist said to me “Mr. Vine, get out of the filing cabinet.” – Tim Vine
