Dentists more likely to be born in December

New research reveals that the birth month of a baby is likely to shape their professional career.

And December is a month rich with dentists, according to the new study by Office for National Statistics.

Researchers came to this conclusion after analysing birth months of people belonging to 19 separate occupations using information from the last census.

They reveal that the month in which babies are born can also affect everything – from intelligence to length of life.

According to the study, summer months mean a much lower chance of becoming a high-earning football player, doctor or dentist.

April and May are said to have a fairly even spread of professions. A lot of September born turn out to be sports players and physicists.
