Just wanted to wish you a very happy and safe St. Patrick’s Day. For the last 8 to 10 years I’ve noticed a trend, the day after any holiday there just seems to be more dental emergencies. With a little research I came across some trends.
Across the country on the day after St. Patrick’s Day, dentists see a 64% increase in emergency dental visits. That’s a pretty big jump considering most of us aren’t bar brawling hooligans out to paint the town green…or are we?
The most obvious cause for St. Paddy’s day resulting in more emergency dental visits than any other day would most likely be one (or several) too many green beers accompanied of course with generally being out in public, and probably not erring on the side of discretion.
