Dentist’s Day 2014
March 6, 2014 in the World
Dentist’s Day is celebrated on March 06, 2014. Dentists aren’t the most popular people, but they helps you to keep your teeth healthy – you can thank them for their work today! A dentist, also known as a ‘dental surgeon’, is a health care practitioner that specializes in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases and conditions of the oral cavity.
By nature of their general training, a licensed dentist can carry out most dental treatments such as restorative, orthodontics, prosthetic, endodontic therapy, periodontal therapy, and extraction of teeth, as well as performing examinations, taking x-rays and diagnosis. Additionally, dentists are allowed to engage in oral surgery when performing invasive procedures such as dental implant placement.
Dentists can also prescribe medications such as antibiotics, fluorides, pain killers, local anesthetics, sedatives/hypnotics and any other medication that serve in the treatment of the various conditions that arise in the head and neck. All dentists in the U.S. must graduate from high school and complete required courses such as general biology, general chemistry, organic chemistry, physics, and statistics/calculus.

National White Chocolate Cheesecake Day
March 6, 2014 in the USA
A Greek writer named Athenaeus recorded the oldest surviving cheesecake recipe. The ancient dessert called for just three ingredients—cheese, honey, and flour. Despite its simplicity, the Greeks believed that cheesecake had special powers. Brides and grooms ate it as wedding cake, and athletes enjoyed it before the first Olympic games in 776 BC!
The cheesecake we know and love today relies heavily on cream cheese, which wasn’t invented until the 1870s. By the early 1900s, cheesecake appeared on almost every restaurant menu in New York City and soon became a nationwide sensation. People love to experiment with interesting cheesecake flavors like piña colada, turtle, pumpkin pecan, crème brûlée, red velvet, and today’s reason to celebrate, white chocolate.
To celebrate National White Chocolate Cheesecake Day, bake a delicious white chocolate cheesecake or pick one up from your local bakery!

Frozen Food Day
March 6, 2014 in the USA
National Frozen Food Day takes place on March 06, 2014. What a cool thing: Frozen Food Day celebrates all the foods in your freezer! It was proclaimed in 1984 by President Ronald Reagan and called “upon the American people to observe such day with appropriate ceremonies and activities.”
Freezing food preserves it from the time it is prepared to the time it is eaten. Since early times, farmers, fishermen, and trappers have preserved their game and produce in unheated buildings during the winter season. Freezing food slows down decomposition by turning residual moisture into ice, inhibiting the growth of most bacterial species.
