Okay, it seems like an oxymoron to me because I am one of those people. The ones who complain about dentists and loathe going to see them, and dread everything about the entire experience. But it’s very rarely as bad as I’ve made it out to be in my mind.

Once when I was a kid, I worked myself up so much that I barfed on my dentist. The worst part of the entire experience was that all the way through college the hygienist looked ready to bolt at the slightest green tinge to my skin. Super embarrassing as a teen.

In my mind, all dentists are weird. Who would want to spend their days with their hands in other people’s mouths (except for the money, I guess?)? And I’m not alone. There are enough dentist jokes to go around for days.

To whit:

But these 15 people have some truly awesome stories. I guess if you have to be a dentist, you may as well have a little fun with your patients now and again.
