I don’t know who grows up thinking, I’d like to spend every day looking into the mouths of multiple people with varying degrees of tooth decay and rotting gums, but it happens and today we celebrate those weirdos. Happy Dentist’s Day! For the record, I don’t think it’s fair that our skin repairs itself, our hair and nails grow continuously, and our bones can fuse themselves back together yet, we only get one chance at perfect teeth. The first set will fall out, no matter how well you take care of them and the second set, unless you pay for new ones, will be your last set. Who says God doesn’t have a sense of humor?
Anywho, today isn’t about your teeth, it’s about the doctors, yes they are doctors too, who tend to the needs of your mouth. If you happen to have a dentist appointment today, take a card or balloon to show your appreciation. If you don’t have an appointment you can google dentists in your area and give several a ring, just to say, “Happy Dentist’s Day.” I’m certain that never happens and your kind gesture will be the water cooler talk of the day.
Holiday on my friends!
