Last time you went to the dentist, you probably weren’t too thrilled to be there. In fact, you were probably the most excited to be leaving. That’s okay, a lot of people are afraid of the dentist.
Why are dentists so feared? Maybe it’s because they have a reputation for being scary and pain-inducing.
Even though going to the dentist may not be as fun as say, winning the lottery, dental visits are necessary. Dentists do a lot to help us achieve and maintain good oral health.
Here’s something to think about: when is the last time that you thanked your dentist? Maybe your answer is “I tell my dentist ‘thank you’ all the time!” Or maybe, you were so relieved to be leaving that you forgot.
Whether you love going to the dentist or not, dentists really do deserve to hear a few words of gratitude every now and then.
Take care of your smile! And be kind to your dentist. 🙂
