National Dentist's Day Statement: “Dentists have never wavered in their commitment to their patients and their profession.”

Statement from DentaQuest President and CEO Steve Pollock

To mark National Dentist Day tomorrow, March 6, DentaQuest celebrates the essential work of dentists and their dental teams.

The following is a statement from DentaQuest President and CEO Steve Pollock on National Dentist's Day:

“This year has been incredibly challenging for dentists and the entire oral health community. Through it all, dentists and their teams have never wavered in their commitment to their patients and their profession. They’ve taken unprecedented steps to continue to operate and safely provide care, and they’ve adapted to new approaches and technologies to preserve access for those who need it most. We are so proud of the dentists in the DentaQuest family and across this country for all they have done this year. While we celebrate National Dentist's Day on Saturday, I hope we will commit to supporting their work and building back a better oral health system every day moving forward.”
