It’s true.

For you and you and you, and that guy, and that lady, and ALL the dental professionals The Bone Guys are thankful to call friends and clients.

We’re also thankful for the word “cornucopia'.” It’s perfect. Say it with us now, “corn-u-copia.” Yeah, that’s nice.

This is the month when we delight in family togetherness and joy and homemade mashed potatoes. Or heck, box-made mashed potatoes if that’s how your family rolls.

Enjoy our November issue of the Bone Guys and please take a minute to submit your own fun story, favorite dental photo, cartoon, or anything else you’d like to see materialize in this newsletter.

We’ll be ever so thankful when you do.

What Dentists Are Hateful For...

November offers time for us all to take a minute and reflect on what we’re thankful for.

But as we like to say, if you don’t have complaints about your job, you must not be working hard enough.

So we thought we’d balance out the gratitude with just a little hate this month. Join us as we take a look into the things dentists love and hate most about their jobs, via a loose consortium of dental professionals on Reddit answering the question:

Dentists of Reddit, how do you like your job?

The Love… 

“I basically just show up at 8, do dentistry, go home at 5, and get paid.”

“It's always a great feeling getting someone out of pain by pulling that one tooth that's been keeping them awake at night for a week, and they're coming to you because you're all they can afford. Really, it's nice helping people.”

“There are a lot of great things about this field: Non-stop practicing to become better at procedures, grateful patients that do care about their health, great staff, good money, and job stability (there will always be a need for dentists).”

“Love it. I work hard but I'm only working when I'm at the office. I show up, focus on patients, and leave… I get paid more than I deserve.”

And Now For The Hate… 

“Shitty patients ruining your day/week/month/life. Shitty staff members ruining your day/week/month/life. Being a target for sales reps who waste my time and often know nothing beyond the company talking points.”

“I retired this year and sold my practice because I couldn't take it anymore… the stress of working on demanding, uncooperative, whiny patients wasn't worth it.”

“Fuck dentistry. I'm good at it, I get great results, my patients barely feel a thing, but man there are days I hate it from the bottom of my black heart.”

“It's boring. There's not much creativity at work and everything you do is very procedural.”

“I currently work in a free clinic. I'd rather die violently... Fuck dentistry.”

Wow. Well, then…
