March Newsletter

March is an exciting month.  It can bring our first glimpses of Spring in the Lehigh Valley.  While we haven't seen much of a winter, that fact still offers a lot of promise.  On the horizon are longer days and warmer weather, and I, for one, can't wait!  March is a particularly celebratory month for many in the dental field.  March 6th is National Dentist's Day and March 1-7 is National Dental Assistant Appreciation Week.  Check out the features on our superstar dental assistants at HDD, and read up on our latest news.  As always, thank you for trusting me with your dental care.  I look forward to our next visit together. 

Dr. Jose A. Gil

National Women's History Month

This month we celebrate women in a big way.  Since 1911, the world has been celebrating International Women's Day on March 8th.  In 1980, President Carter set aside the week of March 2nd through 8th as Women's History Week in the United States.  In 1987, it was expanded into a month-long recognition of females, highlighting specifically their contributions socially, politically, economically, and culturally to America and the world.  There have been many accomplished and passionate women who have influenced the field of dentistry.  We're sure there are females you know who have made a big impact on your life.  Take a minute to recognize them with us this month.  Way to go, ladies! 👏

Dental Assistant Appreciation Week: March 1-7

It's the perfect time to put the spotlight on two very important females at HDD - Dr. Gil's trusted dental assistants, Hannah and Jen! We recognize them in a special way this week during Dental Assistant Appreciation Week. These girls do so much to make your visits with Dr. Gil run smoothly, but they also do a lot behind the scenes. Hannah is in charge of inventory, so when she is not helping with patients she is checking our supplies and restocking. Both assistants work in the lab to help make models of your teeth, night guards, and retainers. They also pitch-in at the front desk when necessary.  Jen is especially helpful with our Spanish-speaking patients. We hope you'll agree that our dental assistants at HDD get 👍👍!

National Dentist's Day: March 6th

Annually, on March 6th, we recognize dentists for all of their hard work in keeping our teeth and mouths healthy.  Dr. Gil takes this job very seriously, and being a dentist is something he is passionate about.  But, there is more to Dr. Gil than his rapidly growing beard, chairside jokes, and attention to your smile.  Here are a few fun facts about your favorite dentist at HDD:

- He is an avid NBA fan.

- He has his black belt in karate.

- He was a Music major in college and plays the piano, guitar, and alto saxophone.

- He loves to read fiction and nonfiction - David McCullough is one of his favorite authors.

- He climbed Mount Fiji in Japan in 2010.

- He won a dance competition on a cruise after graduating from dental school.

Leap Year 2020

2020 is not only the dawn of a new decade; it's also a Leap Day year!  That means we had an extra day in February (yesterday).  Why do we have leap days?  It's to keep our calendar on track.  We follow the Gregorian calendar which has 365 days in it, but the earth's orbit around the sun is actually 365.25 days.  So in order to "catch up," we add a day to February every four years.

We announced our Smile Project 2020 winner on Valentine's Day, and send a special thank you to all of our entries!  It was a hard decision for us because all of your nominees sound truly deserving.  We hope to continue this project in the years to come, so enter again next year!  In the meantime, take a look at Junior's before pictures, and keep following along with his progress.
