Every year, National Dentist Day falls on March 6, and it’s one of our favorite days of the year! We know the reasons we love the dentist like the back of our hand. 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 polished teeth.
Visiting the dentist can also help you feel better. For some, visiting the dentist allows for unknown health conditions from gingivitis to high blood pressure to be discovered. For others, it can be a source of relief from nagging tooth pain.
Finding the reason something’s been irritating the mouth provides not only an answer to an unknown for those of us who aren’t dentists, but it also provides 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 because they understand how important oral health is to overall health. When you learn about the connection the mouth has to the whole body, it’s hard not to love the dentist and all that they do for us!
We want to hear why you love your dentist. Maybe they relieved a toothache for you, or maybe they make you laugh with their cheesy dentist jokes. For National Dentist Day, let us know why you love the dentist by tagging us in a post or sharing one of the images below on our social media channels!
So, why do you heart your dentist?
Some people love the dentist because of that minty mouth feeling they get after a fresh cleaning and polishing!
Others love the dentist because they genuinely make them smile. Enjoying the company of your dentist – and not being put off by them – can make your appointment much more enjoyable.
Did you know that the dentist knows the Tooth Fairy? More importantly, do your kids know? Tell the kids before their next appointment to bring questions for the Tooth Fairy that they can ask the dentist.
We all love gifts and the dentist loves to give gifts! Along with the gift of a healthy smile, the dentist gives toothbrushes so we can all stay up on good oral health. Make sure to change toothbrushes every three months!
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.
Don’t forget to share with us why you and your family and friends love the dentist for National Dentist Day!
