I went to the dentist’s on June 4th to get my teeth cleaned. My dental hygienist told me that it was Cavity-Prevention Day, so I was lucky. Without knowing it, I’d made an appointment for a cleaning on the same day, June 4th! Luckily, I didn’t have any cavities! I love sweets so I should count myself lucky not to have gotten any cavities so far in my life! So far, so good! (^.^)
Later in the day, I had a language exchange session with a student of mine. She explained why June 4th is called Cavity-Prevention Day, in Japanese MUSHIBA YOBOU NO HI or MUSHIBA YOBOU DAY. The latter, “MUSHIBA YOBOU DAY“, seems to be more popular. I found this name funny because it’s part Japanese and part English, but an accepted name in Japanese! Amazing! (^.^) I think Dental Hygiene Week is a great idea and a great chance to teach people public proper dental hygiene so that they can keep their teeth strong and healthy.
