Hey, I have seen these french idioms and have tried to put them in a sentence; will someone check them over for me please?

Je serais aux anges = I would be over the moon → to be over the moon (lit: to be at the level of the angels), être aux anges

Mais j'ai d'autres chats à fouetter = But I have better things to do→ to have better things to do; other fish to fry (lit: to have other cats to whip), avoir d'autres chats à fouetter

J'ai assez le dents longues: je voudrais etre un pediatre! = I am quite ambitious: I would like to be a pediatrician! → to be ambitious (lit: to have long teeth), avoir les dents longues

The last one is correct, but incorrectly used in your example.

J'ai les dents longues, je rêve de devenir pédiatre !

Attention à l'accent!
