Wednesday March 6 is National Dentist’s Day! I may be just a little bit biased, but this is one of my favorite holidays. I know what you are thinking… but it‘s a day to honor and celebrate the important work of dentists all over the world.
While it might seem like being a dentist is a fairly new profession, in fact, the first dentist in recorded history was an Egyptian named Hesy Ra, who is thought to have lived and practiced his dentistry in Egypt around 2600 BCE. However, the French surgeon Pierre Fuachard, known as the “Father of Modern Dentistry” didn’t appear until 1723.
While the profession is extremely old, it has evolved greatly as time has gone on and the technology that we now have to ensure your oral health is truly amazing. I love what I do and I am continually challenged and excited about the future of my profession.
Most importantly, National Dentist Day is a time to reflect on YOUR dental care and ensure you’re keeping your smile the very best it can be.
So next week, I’ll celebrate my profession and I’ll celebrate YOU as my valued and treasured patient. Let’s work together to make sure your teeth are healthy and that you have a SMILE that you are proud of!
Wishing you bright and beautiful SMILES!
