Every year, special occasions act as reminders to appreciate all we have. Christmas reminds us to enjoy our loved ones, Thanksgiving reminds us to appreciate what we have, and now, National Dentist Day reminds us to appreciate our family dentist. So, this March 6, remember to thank that special person who keeps your smile bright!

What is National Dentist Day?

National Dentist Day was created to show respect to the thousands of dentists caring for patients across Canada. It was sanctioned as a means to raise awareness of the necessity of good oral health and hygiene. This occasion takes place annually on March 6th. 

5 Ways You Can Celebrate National Dentist Day

Celebrating National Dentist Day doesn’t need to be complicated. It just takes a few simple actions to acknowledge this special day!

  • Give thanks to your dentist: At your next appointment, snap a photo with your dentist and post it to your social media accounts, acknowledging their efforts. Use the hashtags #NationalDentistsDay or #DentistsDay to garner support and generate awareness.
  • Sent a thoughtful email: Many dentists would value the show of appreciation from an email thanking them for their services. This token of recognition will make your dentist’s day and spark goodwill for future checkups. 
  • Referrals: Referring your friends and colleagues is the highest praise you can give to your family dentist. This simple action communicates that you value them, their services, and how they’ve made you feel as a patient.
  • Dental work charity donations: Try donating to a charity that offers free dental work for those who need it. Many people can’t afford dental care so by donating to charity, you’re helping those in need gain access to an essential resource. 
  • Keep up with your own dental health: Your dental health requires ongoing maintenance. Keep brushing, flossing, and limiting your sugar intake to ensure good oral health.
