    What reactions does your BF get when he tells people he is a dental nurse?
    Well they usually approach him thinking he is a dentist so usually: 'Ohhhh....ok then-you'd be a great dentist'. Patients generally think its pretty cool to have a guy dental nursing as it is a job usually reserved for women. Some people may be set in their ways but he's had no requests to leave even by nervous patients.

    There is still quite a lot of stigma in the dental profession though but hopefully over time that fades, just like male nursing and eventually, male midwives.
