Celebrate National Dentist’s Day with Your Somerset Dentists!

National Dentist’s Day, held on the 6th of March every year, is fast approaching! This is a significant day in the calendar of our Somerset dentists and indeed the dental industry as a whole. In our latest blog post, we provide information about National Dentist’s Day and share ways in which you can celebrate the occasion.

Why Celebrate the Day with Our Somerset Dentists?

Dentists all over the world devote their time and apply their medical knowledge to help patients stay on top of their oral health. With sound oral wellbeing being an integral part of overall health, the role dentists play is crucial to patients sustaining a healthy life. Our team of Somerset dentists are dedicated to helping you put your best smile forward, calming fears over visiting the dentist and, ultimately, keeping your mouth and teeth healthy in order for you to live a happy, healthy life.

These are some of the main reasons to celebrate the work of dentists on March 6th and, from all of the team here at Widcombe Dental Practice, we’d like to share an industry-wide message; keep up the good work dental professionals!

Your Dentist In Bath Helps You Smile Away on Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and whether you have plans to enjoy this day of romance with your partner or you’re looking to find the one this year, make sure you’re ready with the assistance of your dentist in Bath.

Discover A Confident Smile With Your Dentist In Bath

Having complete confidence in the appearance of your teeth allows you to wear your smile freely and proudly, and what better day than Valentine’s Day to show your beaming smile? The expression of joy and happiness on your face should not be inhibited by staining, a chipped tooth or any other dental situation that may cause embarrassment and reservation. 

Avoid such instances by booking an appointment with our Bath dentists before Valentine’s Day. General treatments such as routine checkups or fillings, can help get your oral hygiene and teeth in perfect condition for the 14th of February.

A Visit to Our Bath Hygienists 

At certain points of the year, our Bath dental hygienists see waves of patients attending our practice as part of preparations for special occasions. Valentine’s Day is undoubtedly one of those. Is your smile Valentine’s Day ready for 2020? A trip to see one of our dedicated hygienists can help address issues such as staining, bad breath and general bad oral health of both teeth and gums. Wherever the setting for your romantic encounter, your smile will be one of the first things noticeable following a trip to the hygienist!

It is unsurprising to see more people perfecting their smile during events such as Valentine’s Day and Christmas, with a trip to our dental hygienists in Bath. However, it is important to note that a visit to see a dental hygienist has as many health benefits as it does cosmetic. Our dentists in Bath recommends that you see a hygienist routinely throughout the year to keep on top of your oral health.

While morish chocolates and enjoying beautiful flowers are likely to be ever-present this Valentine’s Day, set them on the Invisalign journey and watch their face light up as they realise that they’re on the pathway to perfectly straight teeth!

Has your partner hinted at a desire to achieve perfect teeth through Invisalign treatment? The beauty of this present is that you can show you care with a thoughtful idea while going as far as you wish in terms of the cost.
