Be Mouth Healthy this Holiday with the ADA & Hermey the Elf: Dental Do Gooder
The Holidays are here, and some of Dr. Christianson’s favorite holiday specials are coming to television soon! We all remember and love “It’s Christmas Charlie Brown,” “Frosty the Snowman,” or “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.” But Dr. Christianson’s favorite holiday special is “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.”


Why does this beloved children’s classic hold a special place in our hearts? Well that’s all because of Hermey, the elf who didn’t want to make toys. Hermey wanted to be a dentist! Our friends at the American Dental Association want to share with you, Hermey the Elf: “Dental Do Gooder!”


“After 50 years of dreaming about becoming a dentist and promoting good dental health to his friend Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and everyone in the North Pole, Hermey the Elf has been named a DDG–Dental Do Gooder. The animated classic “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” airs Tuesday, December 9 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
