Dentist Survey Uncovers Sports Car Attraction

Dentists and sports carsThe Wealthy Dentist has observed a certain stereotype that dentists drive sports cars. So we conducted a dentist survey asking doctors if they have ever owned a sports car, or if they own one now.

Dentists love their sports cars!

As it turns out, 26% of our dentists own a Porsche; 34% own another brand of sports car — and they’re proud of it!

“It certainly fits me as I have had them for over sixty years,” replied a Georgia dentist.

“You earned it, enjoy it,” said a general dentist in Canada.

The 40% who are not sports car buffs apparently support their collegues’ right to reward themselves for their hard work.

“I don’t drive a sports car but I have no problem with other dentist driving [one]. We all have our priorities of where we spend our hard earned money.” Kentucky dentist

“We work hard. Some of us are car people. For those who want a nice sports car, I feel they have earned it.” Illinois dentist

Here’s how a Massachusetts dentist  handles patient comments about his expensive toys: “I think dentists should stop feeling guilty for their incomes. I have never said I deserve anything. I am however grateful that my patients over the years have supported me. When a patient says they paid for my boat I thank them because it is true.”

Of course, all stereotypes have exceptions:  “I drive an old Civic for the gas mileage!!” Texas dentist

Is there a sports car in your garage? What do you think of the stereotype of dentists who drive sports cars?

    Dentists, like people in most professions, eventually reach ‘mid-life’ and yes, some have their ‘crisis’ and buy a sports car. There are certainly worse things one could spend their money on! They look sharp, and go fast!
