I’m excited to join others in honoring our frontline physician professionals on March 30th for remaining committed to our community, despite the challenges of COVID-19, and for serving patients 7×24, 365 days a year. Doctors’ Day is an annual observance aimed at appreciating these healthcare professionals who help save and improve our lives every day, everywhere. The holiday first started in 1933 in Winder, Georgia, and since then it’s been celebrated every year on March 30 which was the first anniversary of a doctor using ether anesthesia- Dr. Crawford W. Long in 1842.
The last year has taught us even more appreciation for the sacrifices made by these caring people.
National Doctors’ Day rightly honors and uplifts these professionals in recognizing their contributions near and far. Time and time again, they put the needs of their patients first, remain steadfast in their work, and operate with a resilience that I can only admire. On National Doctors’ Day, we join others around the country in expressing our gratitude to doctors of all specialties for what they do and for their commitment to the betterment of our health.
Our dental providers work ceaselessly to provide hundreds of thousands of your neighbors throughout Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont with the highest standard of oral healthcare. They do it all while mitigating the devastating effects of COVID-19, navigating a rapidly changing landscape, daily advancements in technology and tools and other challenges of which we are completely unaware. I salute you all.
