Happy Thanksgiving from Dr. Ryan and the staff at Sawgrass Pediatric Dentistry!

So as well prepare for Thanksgiving this Thursday, we just wanted to share some fun facts with you about this upcoming holiday. We are working hard here at SPD to make everyone have amazing smiles to show their family and friends!
As everyone knows, the turkey is the most important part of Thursday's event but did you know:
  • The plymoth pilgrims were the first to celebrate Thanksgiving
  • Benjamin Franklin wanted the turkey to be the official bird of the United States
  • Abraham Lincoln made the official "Thanksgiving Proclamation" in October 1863
  • In the United States, we spend over $280 million dollars a year on Turkey
  • Every American eats approximately16-18 pounds of turkey per year
We hope you enjoyed those few fun facts! Leave us a message and let us know how you plan to spend this Thanksgiving holiday with your family and friends!
