There are several great films that either have a dentist in the lead role or feature a dentist as a memorable character in the movie. Here is a list of the best dentist movies ever.
Anyone with a fear of sitting in the dentist chair may want to skip 1976’s Marathon Man, one of the scariest dentist horror movies ever made. Dr. Christian Szell (Laurence Olivier) is a Nazi war criminal dentist with a penchant for torturing patients and utters the memorable line “Is it safe?” Of course, Steve Martin’s dentist in Little Shop of Horrors rivals Dr. Szell in terms of sheer sadism.
But not all dentists in pop culture and movies are sadists. In fact, some are very kind. Remember Irish dentist Fergus O’Connell (Daniel Day Lewis) in the movie Eversmile, New Jersey? Dr. O’Connell even offers up his services for free to locals.
