National Dentist’s Day falls on March 6th every year. It was established as a way to show appreciation and thanks for dentists. It’s also a way to bring awareness to dentistry so that people will know more about how to care for their teeth. It also encourages people who may have avoided going to the dentist to come in for a checkup.
How patients can celebrate:

  • Show your dentist how you’ve improved your oral health regimen
  • Commit to better dental habits
  • Raise awareness (teach your child a new tooth-brushing song, encourage family and friends to visit their dentist)
  • Schedule a dental checkup (get back in the office to make sure your teeth are healthy and your habits are on the right track)
  • Smile (show off your work and your dentist’s work)
  • Take a picture with your dentist and do a shout-out on your social media accounts
Important Dental Care Tips:

  • Brush twice per day for at least two minutes
  • Floss daily
  • Visit your dentist twice per year or as recommended by your dentist
  • Eat a balanced diet and limit eating and drinking between meals
