Yes, it’s that time of year when we must become reflective on our lives and, in turn, be thankful for our blessings. Last year we wrote a post titled, “The 5 Developments I’m Thankful for in Modern Dentistry,” but this year I think we might have it beat. Why? Because we have scoured the Guinness World Records website and compiled a list of the best dental related world records. And for that, we are thankful.
