March 6th is National Dentist’s Day! National Dentist’s Day serves as a yearly reminder to show appreciation to dentists. Dentists not only help patients achieve white teeth and a healthy smile – they also play an important part in your overall health.
Don’t believe it? Gingivitis, if left untreated, can turn into periodontal disease, where gums get infected and pull away from teeth. Studies have shown that gum diseases like periodontitis are often closely linked with other chronic health problems such as heart disease and diabetes. That’s why regular checkups and consistent brushing and flossing habits are so crucial!
Your dentist works hard to keep your dental health and overall well-being the best it can be. So be sure to thank your family dentist for all the work that they do! Whether it’s by sending a thank you note to your dentist, committing to brush and floss more regularly, or making your next dental appointment, there are plenty of ways to show your dentist that you appreciate them.
The family dentists at Dakota Dental truly care about their patients. Whether it’s through community outreach, providing patients with helpful resources, or simply creating a comfortable environment in their Apple Valley dental clinic, the dentists at Dakota Dental want to help you feel your best.
