Recognizing your dental team for their hard work over the year is quintessential to having a successful practice. Mother’s Day and Father’s Day are great examples of appreciation days for the labor of love that goes into raising a family. Medical and dental professionals don’t stop at taking care of their families; they go above and beyond to take care of their patients, too. Dental professionals need to be recognized for their hard work, because it’s not just a job, it’s patients’ lives they’re improving every day. So, whether you’re looking for some social media inspiration for your practice or just wanting to find a reason to celebrate our amazing industry, we’ve compiled some dental holidays to celebrate this year and every year.
