And that’s a wrap! Another great St. Patrick’s Day in the books. One of our favorite parts of this holiday are the values of tradition and celebration that are associated with it. For us at Dentistry for Children, tradition and celebration are an everyday occurrence, and we love that we get the opportunity to share it with our patients. So how exactly do we combine the worlds of our traditions with those of St. Patrick’s Day? Let us indulge you!
We’re all about inclusiveness, so on St. Patrick’s Day everyone is an "honorary Irish." From green all over to shamrocks, and Irish soda bread to cheerful smiles - we love to include all of our doctors and patients in the celebration. Meals, music, and fun activities bring people together, so we like to incorporate that into our office to foster a sense family. Additionally, we have a tradition we like to call “Tell – Show – Do.” It’s a child-friendly model that explains what the appointment will include and shows the patients and parents what the plan of action of is and the instruments that we’ll be using. We then provide excellent dental care to ensure big healthy smiles!
Just as the leprechauns are aiming to get that elusive pot of gold, our office is looking to obtain our goal, too: Educate to Eliminate! Dr. Maher’s aims to mirror her campaign as President of the Delaware State Dental Society where our team will educate parents, children, medical providers, and facilities on the importance of dental care and cavity prevention. We’re confident in achieving our goal because back in January, our team was able to participate in the Health and Wellness Expo at the Chase Center in Wilmington, DE where we were able to get dental health and cavity prevention information out to the community in a fun and engaging forum. If we could do that, this month’s goal is in the bag!
Speaking of dental health, be sure to avoid an overabundance of gummy candies and sugary drinks. These treats can cause cavities to appear, and that is the last thing we want for you, so be sure to floss and brush regularly to ensure you keep that beautiful smile!
So from our office to you, we hope you all had a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day, and may you have a wonderful spring season!
