Five Things We Can All Be Thankful for This Year

It’s Thanksgiving time again, a time to be with loved ones and to take stock of our lives and what really matters. Unfortunately, with the stress of the holidays, it can sometimes be hard to find a reason to be thankful this time of year. But even when you’re over it all and ready to hibernate until spring, we can all still be thankful about these five things!

Friends and Family

Whether you’ve got a big family, a small family, or friends who have become family, we can all be thankful for the people in our lives we love and who love us right back. We may not get to see them as often as we’d like, but knowing they’re out there in the world makes everything better, doesn’t it?

Long Weekends

We love our jobs, but there’s something to be said for a long weekend when you can sleep in as late as you want and not have to worry about dressing warmly or sitting in traffic. Bonus points for everyone in your home getting the same long weekend to share with you.


Remember that episode of Friends where Monica made Ross the leftover turkey sandwich with the "moistmaker" slice of gravy-soaked bread in the middle? Well, someone ate Ross’ sandwich, but his reaction pretty much sums up how most of us feel about Thanksgiving leftovers: Sometimes they're better than the meal itself was! Feel free to enjoy some leftovers this Thanksgiving - but make sure you brush afterward, and always be aware of food safety.

Your Oral Health

No matter what the condition of your teeth or how your smile measures up, it could always be worse. This year make it a point to show your teeth that you’re thankful for them by taking even better care of them than you did last year - and let your smile give you something to smile about!

Patients Like You

We hope you’re grateful for yourself, because we’re grateful that you entrust us with your oral health care each year! Dr. Simpson and her entire team wish you a happy, healthy Thanksgiving full of love, gratitude, family, friends, smiles and leftover turkey sandwiches.
