4. Dental hygienist T-shirt

Hygienists are used to dealing with scary things - blood and saliva, bad breath and irritable patients, just to name a few. If you're immune to being scared, or you just prefer a low-key costume when it comes to Halloween, opt for a humorous T-shirt like this one instead.
