9 Types of Dental Students



1. The Keen Bean

The library is a second home and they reserve their front seat at lectures at least a week in advance.


2. The Houdini

Seen at every Freshers Week event and sports night, but as soon as lectures start, they are no where to be seen! Spooky.


3. The Ladies Man

Exclusively attends based on the male:female ratio of an event and, if their exploits are to be believed, their offspring could repopulate the entire university. *CRINGE*


4. The Jock/Cheerleader

Seen at every sporting event and social, lectures and patients are a hobby on the side.


5. The Drunk

They are either a light weight or cant stop until they have drunk their body weight in alcohol. Seen as often in A/E as they are at sports night.


6. The Cheapskate

Clears up at the freshers fayre and, mysteriously, their turn to buy the next round never emerges. Shifty.


7. The Disorganised One

With no concept of a timetable, this student plays Russian Roulette to decide if they are meant to be in lectures, clinics or if it’s a day off!


8. The Liar

Has never opened a textbook in their life, much less revised for an exam…but still nails it. Will stay back long after lectures or tutorials have finished to soak as much knowledge as they can.


9. The Nervous Wreck

The mere mention of a presentation, examination, patient interaction or even a loud fart will render this poor student comatose.
