Mnemonic for Stenson’s and Wharton’s Salivary Ducts

How to remember Stenson’s and Wharton’s Salivary Ducts ?

Use the mnemonic below to remember the salivary ducts.

  • Stenson’s – think “S” for Second molar and Smokeless tobacco (between check and gum). Logically drains the parotid gland.
  • Wharton’s – think “W” for Wet Willie (requires finger against tongue to initiate). Logically drains the submandibular and sublingual glands
