Without the dentist, we would have a lot of problems with our teeth and oral health. We owe a lot to our dentists for keeping our mouths healthy and our smiles bright. This March 6, show your dentist you care by celebrating National Dentist’s Day.
Dentistry has a long history. The first documentation of dentistry dates back to 2600 B.C. with dentist Hesy-ra of ancient Egypt. Many, many years later, the Book of Dentistry was written. In 1530, Artzney Buchlein published the “Little Medicinal Book for All Kinds of Diseases and Infirmities of the Teeth.” By 1990, cosmetic dentistry was on the rise. Everything from colorful braces, to bleaching, the veneers, to implants were used to help improve people’s smiles.
There are a few ways to celebrate National Dentist’s Day this March 6. First, brush your teeth. You should brush your teeth two to three times every day, but spend a few minutes on March 6 caring for your teeth as your dentist recommends. In addition to brushing, don’t forget to floss and use mouthwash.
Another way to celebrate National Dentist Day is by scheduling an appointment with your dentist. We should see our dentists at least twice a year for semi-annual cleanings and check-ups. If you forgot to schedule your appointment this year, schedule it for March 6 so you won’t forget again!
Finally, consider writing a thank-you note to your dentist. Being a dentist can be a thankless job, especially because so few people actually enjoy going to the dentist. To show your dentist you care, even if you don’t like going to your bi-annual cleanings, write them a thank-you note. This small gesture can mean a lot to your dentist.
