Simple ways to celebrate your dentist
If you need ideas to celebrate your dentist on National Dentist Day, we can help! These are simple and affordable (or free) tokens of gratitude that any dentist will appreciate!
Patient demeanor means a lot
Dentists love a clean mouth, but they really appreciate kind and respectful patients! The next time you are at the dentist’s office be sure to be extra gracious towards the entire staff. Be patient if they are running slightly behind schedule, catch up with the receptionist, and be sure to thank your dentist after your checkup.
Good oral health habits at home keeps dentists happy
One of the easiest ways to show your dentist some love is to practice good oral health habits at home every day.

Write a thank you card to your dentist
A hand-written thank you card is a simple yet meaningful gesture that is sure to make your dentist smile. Being a dentist is often a thankless job but a letter expressing your appreciation for their hard work can make their day.
Encourage a night out
Dentists tend to work long hours, which means they probably do not get a lot of time to relax and enjoy an evening with their loved ones. Celebrate National Dentist Day by giving them a gift card to a local restaurant, art center, or movie theater.
Why we celebrate National Dentist Day
At Delta Dental of New Mexico we celebrate dentists to recognize the important work they do in maintaining the oral and overall health of individuals, families, and communities. Dentists are responsible for a wide range of tasks such as performing examinations, cleaning and polishing teeth, treating cavities, and providing advice on proper oral hygiene. Celebrating dentists allows us to acknowledge their dedication and hard work in the field.
