The day is finally here! According to The History Channel, “the most familiar story of the first Thanksgiving took place in Plymouth Colony, in present-day Massachusetts, in 1621.” Today, nearly four centuries later, we’ll sit down to bountiful meals with our favorite friends and family to express our gratitude for everything life has blessed us with. At Dr. Craig Armstrong’s Houston dental practice, our entire team is excited for this beautiful holiday. We truly have so much to be appreciative of, and we’re delighted to kick off what is sure to be a stellar holiday season. We wanted to share our Thanksgiving joy with you in this blog. Read on to learn more about our thankful thoughts on this Turkey Day.
The poet Joseph Brodsky once said, “Cherish your human connections: your relationships with friends and family.” We’re apt to take his advice this Thanksgiving! Dr. Armstrong and our team are incredibly grateful to have supportive, wonderful friends and family at our sides.
Of course, we can’t even think about Thanksgiving without conjuring up images of golden turkeys, creamy mashed potatoes, rich gravy, bright cranberries, sumptuous pumpkin pie, and so much more. Our Houston dental team enjoys an extravagant Turkey Day feast just as much as anyone else! However, as oral health professionals, we do want to gently remind you to drink plenty of water, try to avoid too much snacking, and take it easy on the sugar on this festive day. Getting a cavity would put a real damper on the upcoming holiday season, but if you follow our tips, you can have your Thanksgiving cake (okay, probably pie) and eat it too, enjoying your meal while maintaining your mouth.
Way back in 1621, those Plymouth colonists were unfortunately probably eating their famous meal with missing, blackened, cavity-filled, crooked teeth. We’re thankful today and every day for the marvels of modern dentistry! With advanced technology like digital X-rays and Dr. Armstrong’s extensive knowledge of oral health, our team is here for you. We offer a wide range of general and restorative dental treatments to help you keep your mouth healthy and functioning, so you can relish your Thanksgiving meal.
Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh put it well when he said, “Because of your smile, you make life more beautiful.” We couldn’t agree more! We are thankful for all of our patients’ delightful smiles. We’re also grateful for the opportunity to help you make yours even better with a wide range of cosmetic dentistry options. We love seeing our patients walk out of our Houston dental practice with renewed confidence and dazzling grins, ready to take on the world and make life more beautiful.
We are also filled with gratitude for our amazing team. Every clinician in our practice is caring, experienced, skilled, and a joy to work with. Of course, our dentists are also outstanding. Dr. Armstrong’s decades of experience and prestigious fellowships make him an incredible leader for our team and provider for our patients. Dr. Sauer was also named by his dental peers as one of America’s Top Dentists, and Dr. Katzmark has earned numerous awards for her excellent work.
Our Houston dental team has so much to be grateful for, but the number one thing on our Thanksgiving list is you! Our patients are the reason we do what we do every day. We are delighted to answer your questions, maintain your oral health, remedy your conditions, enhance your smile, and get to know you during your appointments.
We hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday, and we look forward to seeing you soon! Remember, if you haven’t had a dental exam and cleaning in the last six months, it’s time to make an appointment. Contact our Houston dental practice today to schedule your next visit.
