most popular painting for dental students

is this:

The Scream by Edvard Munch.inflamma

I can’t tell you how many times this picture has come up in our dental school class slides… or how many times I drew a version of this painting in my notes. (Often next to some gruesome clinical pictures or surgery photos that came on without warning).

What a masterpiece. This painting never fails to evoke my anxiety and uneasiness. Just one look and I’m biting my lip. If I had to describe dental school as a painting… I would have to say yeah, this one.

Okay, I’m kidding. But seriously, this is the most prevalent/commonly observed painting in a dental school setting. Here’s another one- Burkitt’s lymphoma is characterized by these cells that look like the sky in Starry Night.


Looks exactly the same as the original! Too cool.
