Dental Office Romance Blooms for One in Five Dentists

Dating Coworkers: One in 5 Dentists Has Done It
Wrongful Discharge: Dental Survey Results

In this survey, we asked dentists if they have ever become romantically involved with a coworker at their dental practice (other than their spouse). One in five dentists admits to dating a colleague or employee. Most caution against mixing business with pleasure, but a few happy marriages have been born in the dental office.

Gender played a distinct role in a dentist’s experience with office romance. One in four male dentists admits to becoming involved with a coworker, while only one in ten female dentists does.

Here are some comments from dentists:

  • “A very bad idea in the workplace.” (Endodontist)
  • “I won’t ever do it again. It cost me my marriage!” (Orthodontist)
  • “Sounds like fun, but in the long run a bad idea.” (General dentist)
  • “Bad for business… Can face sexual harassment charges.” (Prosthodontist)
  • “I think it can work!” (Pediatric dentist)
  • “While it was passionate and enjoyable, it clouded my judgment and almost cost me my office.” (General dentist)
  • “At one time in my life I developed a relationship with my dental assistant. My personal life, if kept private from the office, is my own business.” (General dentist)
