NATIONAL DENTIST’S DAY
National Dentist’s Day on March 6th sets aside a day each year for us to say, “Thank you” to the person who keeps our pearly whites in tip-top order every 6 months.
In many cases, the day of our dental visit usually has us a bit nervous and sometimes anxious. We would often rather be someplace else than sitting in a dental chair. The dentist is not the person most of us look forward to seeing. However, when our checkup is done, our teeth are cleaned, the cavities are filled, the broken tooth is fixed, or a toothache is gone, we appreciate what the dentist has done for us.
The dentist is also the person we count on when a tooth aches or an emergency occurs. They make sure our oral health isn’t signifying something more serious. Their offices send out reminders, encouraging us to come in for our routine check-ups and schedule us for appointments. They create plans of care and make our smiles look great, too.
HOW TO OBSERVE #NationalDentistsDay
Take some time to thank your dentist. While you’re at it, schedule your next preventative cleaning. Pick up a new toothbrush and some floss, too! Use #NationalDentistsDay to post on social media.
