National Whatever Day: March 6th

March 6th is a double-dip in National Whatever Holidays: Dentists Day and National Frozen Food Day... How Ironic!

Not many people enjoy going to the dentist's office, and the less often you go, the more the fear tends to build. Never put off going to the dentist if you have sensitivity, pain, or questions about your teeth or hygiene.

By nature of their general training, a licensed dentist can carry out the majority of dental treatments such as restorative (dental restorations, crowns, bridges), orthodontics (Braces, Invisalign), prosthetic (dentures), endodontic (root canal) therapy, periodontal (gum) therapy, and exodontia (extraction of teeth), as well as performing examinations, taking radiographs (x-rays) and diagnosis. Dentists can also prescribe medications such as antibiotics, fluorides, pain killers, Sedatives and any other medication that serve in the treatment of the various conditions of the oral cavity.

We may not like sitting in those chairs under the bright lights with the power tools, but with how important our teeth are you shouldn't take a dentist for granted!

Congress, by Senate Joint Resolution 193, designated March 6, 1984, as “Frozen Food Day” and authorized and requested the President to issue a proclamation upon this occasion. In Proclamation #5157, President Ronald Reagan said: “Now, Therefore, I, Ronald Reagan, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim March 6, 1984, as Frozen Food Day, and I call upon the American people to observe such day with appropriate ceremonies and activities.”

Freezing food preserves food before or after preparation, and allows the food to stay edible for much longer than if left in room temperature conditions because bacteria will be not be able to grow or spread as fast. Too much time in the freezer can cause freezer burn, which makes the food less edible.
