Celebrating dentists on National Dentist Day
Every year, National Dentist Day falls on March 6, and it’s one of our favorite days! Some of us love visiting the dentist because we truly enjoy being around them. Others love that minty-fresh feeling you get afterward and the slick feeling of running your tongue against freshly cleaned and polished teeth.
This National Dentist Day, we’d like to thank all the dentists in the Delta Dental network for making our mission of improving the oral health of the communities we serve a reality.
Reasons we love dentists
There are so many reasons to love your dentist!
Visiting the dentist can also help you feel better. For some, visiting the dentist allows for unknown health conditions to be discovered, from gingivitis to high blood pressure. For others, it can be a source of relief.
Finding the reason something’s been irritating your mouth provides not only an answer to an unknown for those of us who aren’t dentists, but it also gives a path to a healthy mouth again. Even if you’re not 100 percent comfortable with your mouth’s appearance or health, a dentist will never judge. They will, however, work alongside you to get your mouth healthy again!
Others love to visit the dentist! They understand how important dental health is to overall health. When you learn about the connection the mouth has to the whole body, it’s hard not to love dentists and all that they do for us!
How to show your dentist some love
If you want to truly show your dentist the love, don’t skip out on appointments every six months. Visit the dentist regularly for a happy smile and a happy dentist.
