Aside from Valentine’s Day, there is another special day we hope you celebrated at the beginning of the month — National Toothache Day.

We want to share the importance of continuing to care for your oral health even when you are feeling under the weather. Failure to care for your teeth properly can lead to major consequences in the future.
