St. Patrick’s Day & Emergency Dental Visits

St. Patrick’s Day is here and we celebrate by drinking green beer, wearing lots of green clothing and accessories, and – what?! – taking a trip to the dentist? Well, let’s be honest, St. Patrick’s Day festivals & celebrations do get reputations for being epic and 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 don’t usually engage in bar brawling shenanigans and are painting the town green…

Or are we? Yes, it may seem like an extreme stereotype to assume that people get so drunk off green beer and Jameson on St. Patrick’s day to the point that they’d be in bar fights and knock each others teeth out, but it’s true. This is based on the average of dental visits the day after St. Patrick’s Day, and no it’s not about which states have the most Irish residents. There is a software that provides applications and tools for dental practices across the country, and as a result it knows exactly when, where and why Americans visit the dentists. The software suggests that there is truth behind the stereotype and it means that dentists will be extremely busy this Friday, raking in the dough. So even if you do have a dental emergency, you can still be celebrating by saving some green and putting it back into your wallet instead of giving it to the dentist.
