Song of the Day: Steve Martin, “Dentist Song”

On this day in 1867, the Harvard School of Dental Medicine was established in Boston as the first dental school to be associated with a university. To celebrate, here is Steve Martin singing "Dentist Song" from the 1986 film Little Shop Of Horrors.

  1. I saw this in the theatre and it was funny. I would love to see the original. I hate dentists and I was told to shut up and he drilled when I could still feel it. I was a kid and it made me stop going for years…wrong thing to do.


    1. I actually got to where I enjoyed it. Our dentist for many years went to Loyola University Dental School, so it was like being at home. We still see his receptionist at church, but we had a hard time when he retired. We finally found a really good dentist very close to home… actually, we knew he was there, but one of Mary’s friends recommended this other dentist, who was good, but it was a corporation where every time you went in you saw something new. They notified us that office was closing with a text message. Finally I said let’s go to the guy half a mile away. He’s fantastic, we like the people he has working for him and we’re very happy.
