What would you name a cafe that was located in a dental school? (I'm looking for a clever play on words like "The Sweet Tooth" but funnier)

Thanks. These are all great. The LSU Dental School in New Orleans is renaming their newly remodeled cafe, and we were all riffing on what the new name should be.

These were all better than anything we could come up with. We're going to pass along these names to the school and hope that they have as good of a sense of humor as MeFi does.
