Happy Valentine’s Day! At Future of Dentistry, we’re enjoying the holiday, and we hope you are too. We’re wearing our hearts on our sleeves, literally, as you can see in this photo. Our patients have even been listening to the “Love Songs” station on our Pandora radio!
We’re also enjoying the flowers and candy that arrived today! Some are from our patients – thank you! Others are from our team’s family and friends. Dr. Casazza’s family dropped off some treats and the world’s cutest card! Check it out in the photo.
On a more serious note, February is American Heart Month. You may be wondering, what does my heart have to do with dentistry?! It’s the same reason why a cardiologist may ask about your teeth.
Poor oral health is linked to heart problems like endocarditis and cardiovascular disease. The scientific community continues to uncover further connections between dental care and heart disease and stroke.
Your mouth isn’t separate from the rest of your body. Put simply, oral health is important to your overall wellbeing. We encourage patients to think of dental care as an essential part of a healthy life.
There are hearts everywhere on Valentine’s Day, so it’s a perfect fit with American Heart Month! The team at Future of Dentistry wishes everyone a wonderful holiday, and we encourage all our patients to stay “heart healthy” in 2018.
