Dentist in the Chair (1960)

Two dental students get involved in a series of misadventures when they buy some stolen dental equipment from a petty thief and enlist the niece of the college dean to help them get rid of it.

Bob Monkhouse co-wrote and stars in this unremarkable little comedy. If the flimsy plot about stolen instruments at a dental training school isn’t bad enough, the ghastly gags will set your teeth on edge.

Numbing the pain, however, are the willing performances of Monkhouse and Kenneth Connor, and typically sound comic support from Eric Barker.

A far cry from the Doctor films on which it’s obviously modelled, it’s a sight better than its awful sequel, Dentist on the Job (1961).
