When You Go to the Dentist, You Are Setting an Example for Those Around You
Posted on 1/10/2018 by Jolie
When you make an appointment to go in and see your dentist every six months, you are not only taking care of your own oral health. You are also setting a positive example for people around you.
This may be setting an example for a sister or brother, a parent, or even a child. It doesn't matter who is watching you. Just know that someone sees the dedication you are putting towards your oral health. Take that as motivation to keep up with your oral health.
Reasons to Be a Good Role Model
There are many reasons to be a good role model for others. It doesn't even take going out of your way to do something for another person. Going forward in life and taking care of your own health is a great way to be a good role model for others. They will be a witness to you seeing your doctor, your dentist, and keeping your body healthy.
This inspires those around you to try and do the same. It may not be something they outwardly say or show to you. Instead, it may just be something that weighs on their mind. Instead of letting themselves go with whatever type of health they have, seeing you may be all they need to get going with positive changes to their life.
Enjoy going to the dentist. Smile a lot when you come back. Show the world the benefit that comes with taking care of your oral health. That smile may be what someone uses as their motivation to better their own health in some way. Even if you aren't being watched by someone who spends the majority of the day with you, you are being watched by someone, so make the choice to live your life as healthy as possible.

Our patients come back to us because we truly care about the care you receieve. Here are some of the things our amazing patients have to say about us:
Dr. Courtney and her staff are super friendly and made me feel really comfortable. I had to get implants for two "baby" teeth i still had left b/c i never grew permanent teeth in their place. I had to be sedated for the operation and expected to be out of commission for a couples days and in a lot of pain the following week. However, that evening I felt surprisingly good with minimal pain.
Dr. Myers is the best. I have been a patient of his for about 5 years and every time I come he makes me feel super relaxed and at ease. I have had everything from a simple cleaning to crowns and everything is virtually painless afterwards. I would recommend him to any person who is seeking a great dentist and staff.
