“What baseball team would a dentist play for?"/"The Yanks.”

A New York Yankees ("Yanks") have had several dentist puns.

“If a dentist played on a baseball team, which team would he play for? (...) The Yanks!” was printed in Boys’ Life in April 2007. “If your dentist ever played major league baseball he surely played for the Yanks “ was posted on Twitter by Juan Camanay on April 13, 2009. “What baseball team would a dentist play for? The Yanks” was posted on Twitter by Bill Willingham on February 11, 2018.

“Whats a dentist favorite baseball team? the yanks lol” was posted on Twitter by Adam Chow on February 18, 2010. “Q: What baseball team do dentists favor? A: The Yanks! Hahaha sooooo lame!” was posted on Twitter by Stacy Campbell Twist on September 17, 2011. “What baseball team do dentists root for?!!! THE YANKS!” was posted on Twitter by J*A*K Lipnicky on September 27, 2013.

“What’s the difference between a New York Yankees fan and a dentist?"/"One roots for the Yanks, and the other yanks for the roots” is a related riddle.
