'''Dr. Tim Whatley''' is a [[fictional character]] on the [[United States|American]] [[sitcom]] ''[[Seinfeld]]''. He is played by [[Bryan Cranston]] (known best as [[Hal (Malcolm in the Middle)|Hal]] from ''[[Malcolm in the Middle]]'' and as Walt from AMC's ''[[Breaking Bad]]''). Once dubbed "Dentist to the Stars" by George, Whatley is a recurring character, and appears as [[Jerry Seinfeld (character)|Jerry's]] dentist. In "[[The Yada Yada (Seinfeld episode)|The Yada Yada]]", Whatley converts to [[Judaism]], and Jerry expresses to Whatley's Catholic priest in a confession his belief that Whatley has done this solely for right to make jokes (which offends him, not as a Jewish person, but as a comedian). Also in this episode, Kramer coins the phrase "anti-dentite". Whatley briefly dates Elaine. He is also from [[New Jersey]]. In "[[The Mom & Pop Store (Seinfeld episode)|The Mom & Pop Store]]", Jerry is unsure of whether or not he is invited to Whatley's party based on the way Whatley says, "Why would Jerry bring anything?" to Elaine. George also takes a pencil to the party because he thinks there will be a lot of dentists there and he wants to ask if they can compare the teeth marks on a pencil he found in the Jon Voight car to see if he really was the previous owner. Whatley was labeled as a "[[regifting|re-gifter]]" in the episode "[[The Label Maker (Seinfeld episode)|The Label Maker]]", when he gives a label maker to Jerry as a gift because Jerry gave him Super Bowl tickets, when Elaine realizes that it's the same label maker Elaine had given to him as a gift for not charging her for dental work. In "[[The Jimmy (Seinfeld episode)|The Jimmy]]", Whatley irks Jerry by having ''[[Penthouse magazine|Penthouse]]'' magazines in his waiting room and by possibly 'violating' him while he was unconscious during a tooth filling. In "[[The Strike (Seinfeld episode)|The Strike]]", Whatley gave out Christmas gifts that were actually donations made in their name to a charity. This leads George to conjure up a fake charity called "The Human Fund", and he gives out fake Christmas gifts. Also, at Whatley's party, Jerry meets Gwen. Gwen is a "two-face", looking very pretty in some environments, but not so much in others. [[Category:Seinfeld]]
