Amusing Bite Sized Dental Jokes and Puns – Better than Laughing Gas

Sometimes we all need a good laugh to help us relax and lighten our mood. We aren’t afraid to laugh at ourselves, so we found a bunch of jokes and puns about teeth, dentists, and orthodontists that we wanted to share with you. If you have a favorite that we didn’t include, we would love to have you post it to one of our social feeds or share it when we see you at your next appointment. We look forward to hearing what you come up with – and hope that some of these jokes bring a smile to your face!

When a new dentist set up in a small town, he quickly acquired a reputation of being the latest kind of “Painless” dentist. But a local lad quickly disputed this. “He’s a fake!” he told his mates. “He’s not painless at all. When he stuck his finger in my mouth I bit him – and he yelled like anyone else.”

Johnny was sitting in the waiting room after getting his tooth extracted. The receptionist asked him how he was feeling.
“I’m okay” he said, “but I didn’t like the four-letter-word the doctor used during the extraction.”
“What did he say?” asked the nurse, alarmed.
“Oops!” replied Johnny.
(We promise never to say “Oops!” when we are working on your mouth!)

A woman and her husband interrupted their vacation to go to the dentist. "I want a tooth pulled, and I don't want any Novocain or Happy Gas because I'm in a big hurry," the woman said. "Just extract the tooth as quickly as possible, and we'll be on our way." The dentist was quite impressed. "You're certainly a courageous woman," he said. "Which tooth is it?" The woman turned to her husband and said, "Show him your tooth, dear."
