Pucker up for that special someone this week, whether it be the source of romance in your life, or just a person who could use a little extra affection. July 6th 2017 is World Kiss Day!
Kissing and Telling
A kiss can be characterized by the act of pressing one’s lips against someone else’s, or an alternate part of the body (nose, cheek, etc.). Cultural connotations of kissing vary widely. A kiss might express sentiments of love, passion, intimacy, affection, respect, greeting, friendship, even good luck. The “kiss of death” might also be given by a mafioso boss or capo, signifying that the recipient of said kiss is marked for execution, usually coming as the result of some sort of betrayal. So a kiss can mean a lot of things globally.
Kissing on an International Level
The idea behind World Kiss Day (also referred to as International Kissing Day) is to give focus and appreciation to the act of kissing. Many people unknowingly deprive themselves of the simple pleasures associated with kissing for kissing’s sake. Kissing is generally used as a mere social formality, or even a prelude to other activities. Take the act of kissing back today!
Enhance Your Smile (and Therefore Your Kiss) with Bedford Dental Group
Kissing can be an enjoyable experience in and of itself. But there are measures one should take before they go around showing the love.

We make it our business to educate our patients about the ways they can keep their smile bright, shiny, and healthy.
