Here’s a Reason to Make Your Dentist Smile: It’s National Dentist’s Day!

February 24, 2022

March 6th is Annual National Dentist’s Day. It’s an opportunity to show appreciation to your dentist who keeps your smile healthy, fills your cavities, fixes a broken tooth, and heals a toothache.

National Dentist’s Day is also a great opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of dental hygiene. One of the things many dentists frequently discuss is how they wish their patients understood oral health is not separate from overall health.

Dentists can not only keep your mouth healthy, but your whole body. Regular dental check-ups can do far more than just clean your teeth and check for cavities. Your dentist may also help detect early signs of diseases like diabetes, leukemia, and oral cancer before you even notice symptoms.

And anyone who can help us live longer and healthier deserve a special day they can call their own.

WHY YOU SHOULD LOVE YOUR DENTIST

  1. They give you your best smile

Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. Your dentist helps keep it looking good. Whether it’s encouraging you to floss, helping you improve your bite line, or recommending you sleep with a mouthguard, your dentist ensures you have the best, most attractive smile to show the world.

  • They keep us calm

Nobody has ever liked having a root canal! Dentists not only have to focus on solving dental issue difficult problems, but they also want to make sure you feel as secure and calm as possible.

  • They keep us healthy

Healthy teeth mean healthy bodies, and your dentist is there to keep your mouth and body healthy and happy. If you’ve ever had a toothache or any kind of dental emergency, you know how severe the pain can be! Your dentist is there to make you feel our best, from head to toe.
