Happy Anniversary Dental Hygienists!
Thank you for 100 years of promoting oral health and wellness!
Before there was a Dental Hygiene profession, a trip to the dentist consisted mostly of filling cavities and pulling teeth, and who knows what type of anesthetic was available! I've read that 100 years ago, over 50% of all American adults were completely edentulous. Today that figure is less than 10%, and visit to the dental office is much more pleasant! I can think of few other professions that have seen this type of progress. As we celebrate the 100th anniversary of dental hygiene, on behalf of Water Pik, I would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all the dental hygienists who have made our lives better!
