June is here, and Father's Day is right around the corner. It is also Men's Health Month, where we focus on reminding all the Dads we know to remember to care for themselves as much as they care for their families. In keeping with both of those celebrations, now is the perfect time to consider thinking outside the box this Father's Day and giving Dad a dental gift this year.
What will make your Dad smile?
Every Dad is different. That's one of the things that make them special. Here are some unique ideas for the Dad on your list:
- Bluetooth Toothbrush - Does your Dad like to own all of the latest technology? If so, a bluetooth toothbrush might be the perfect choice for him. A bluetooth toothbrush is a step up from a regular electric toothbrush. Bluetooth communication actually allows this brush to connect with his smartphone to give him real-time feedback on his brushing habits. The app is available for both iPhone and Android phones.
- Mouthwash Dispenser - Many dads would prefer a homemade gift to something bought in a store. You can get creative and support his dental health at the same time with a DIY mouthwash dispenser. Fill his favorite empty whiskey or other alcoholic drink bottle with his mouthwash of choice. Bottle not empty? Buy him a flask to go with it.
- Dental Emergency Kit - Perhaps your Dad travels a lot for work or loves to go camping. Dental problems can immobilize even the toughest traveler when they are hours away from their dentist. Dental Emergency Kits are available online and contain some basic first aid items to help Dad deal with the problem until he can get back home.
- Dental Whitening Treatment - Is your Dad meticulous about his smile? Treat him to a dental whitening treatment. Our Zoom! Advanced Whitening is a great option to give him a whiter smile in just one visit.
It's all about the love
Did you know that there is a strong link between gum disease and heart disease? Regular healthy habits can reduce Dad's chances of contracting either. If Dad hasn't been to see a doctor or a dentist in awhile, now is a good time to remind him to schedule those appointments.
Whatever you decide to get Dad this Father's Day, make sure he knows how much you appreciate him. We're hoping one of these unique gift ideas will give your Dad a happy heart, and a healthy smile.
