Dentists Open to Driving Electric Cars

4 of 5 dentists would drive an electric carFour out of five dentists are open to driving an electric car. In fact, 16% of dentist respondents say they already own an electric or hybrid car.

In this survey, 23% of dentists said they would love to get an electric car, and 42% would consider purchasing one.

“Most dentists I know give more back to their community than they spend on their car,” offered one dentist, a subtle comment against the stereotype of dentists who drive sports cars.

Here are some further comments on cars from dentists:

  • “I love my Prius, but would love even more being able to recharge from my home.” (New York dentist)
  • “Expensive sports cars and others in a similar price range are no longer the norm for most dentists that I am aware of, although the stereotype is still present.” (Massachusetts dentist)
  • “I am opposed to any dentist driving expensive cars of any kind when they do not pay for their staffs’ health insurance and other necessary benefits. I sacrifice so that my staff can have good health insurance because I was taught to treat your staff like you would want to be treated!” (Alabama dentist)
  • “I don’t own a sports car. Rather than ‘waste’ money on an expensive car, I’d rather spend $50,000-$100,000 on something for my home or office that will make more money. Then, the money I make will be used for my family and the rest given to a worthy charity. Doing that makes me happier than driving any sports car!” (Ohio prosthodontist)
  • “Let’s be healers of the earth.” (General dentist)
  • “Hell, I don’t care what anyone drives, but patients always seemed to comment when I drove Mercedes, Excalibur, Rolls Royce, Jaguar, and Porsche autos. I grew out of that need years ago, but patients still ask what I’m driving now.” (Missouri dentist)
  • “I would love a Tesla!!” (New Hampshire dentist)
  • “I think if we work hard and can afford a fun car, we should get one!” (General dentist)
  • “I never would buy all electric; it’s too far to drive to work and play.” (Louisiana dentist)
  • “The problem for me is that I travel to places of the beaten track and it would be hard to find a place to ‘plug’ it in.” (California orthodontist)
