There seems to be national days for everything now—from national dog day to national donut day. So, why not have a national day celebrating your dentist?
March 6th is National Dentist Day, which is set as a day to celebrate dentists and the services they offer the community. If our Bridge Creek Dental patients want to celebrate National Dentist Day, here are some ideas to help you observe the day.
1. Renew Commitment To Better Dental Health
Tasks you are expected to do every day can be tough to stay on top of—from making the bed to brushing your teeth, it can be tough to be consistent. But when it comes to your dental health, being consistent with your twice-daily teeth brushing and nightly flossing is essential.
Even if you have recently struggled to stick to a good oral hygiene routine, you can celebrate National Dentist Day by renewing your commitment to sticking to a healthy routine of flossing and brushing.
2. Schedule Your Biannual Dental Cleaning
Every six months, you should come in for a dental cleaning. During your dental cleaning, you can have any built-up tartar and dental plaque removed by our dental hygienist, which your regular toothbrush can’t remove.
Also, during this cleaning and check-up, our dentists can look over areas of concern that may have been flagged during your last cleaning. That way, if a problem has progressed, it can be taken care of before it becomes a bigger issue.
If it has been a while since your last dental cleaning, let National Dentist Day be the day where you break that streak and call to make your dental cleaning appointment.
3. Shout Out Your Dentist On Social Media
Everyone likes to feel appreciated, and your dentist is no exception. As most businesses now have social media pages, you can shout out your dentist on social media as part of National Dentist Day.
4. Raise Awareness In Your Community
Dental health can sometimes take a backseat to other health issues that people face. Yet, your dental and oral health is an essential part of your overall health. So, put dental health front and center by raising awareness of dental health best practices and common issues people should see their dentist about.
Some of the things you can do to raise dental health awareness can start at home with you teaching your children new toothbrushing techniques. Or, you can share on your social media how often people should be replacing their toothbrushes.
5. Show-Off Your Pearly Whites
You and your dentist work hard on your smile. So, for National Dentist Day, make a concentrated effort to show off those pearly-whites and try to keep a smile on your face. Who knows, you may just make someone’s day by simply smiling!
6. Appreciate Your Dentist With A Message
For National Dentist Day, you can reach out to your dentist with a message of appreciation. While you can reach out on social media with your message of appreciation, you can also feel free to email our dentists with your message.
So, if National Dentist Day has reminded you that your next dental cleaning is coming up, feel free to contact Bridge Creek Dental to schedule your next appointment with our experienced dentists.Share This:
