About Toothache Day
When is Toothache Day? This holiday is always observed on February 9
Toothache Day is today, a February 9 holiday. One can only ask why does this special day exist? If only we could find the creator of this day, perhaps he or she could put some logic and meaning into the purpose of this day.
There are a lot of bizarre days. Many celebrate funny or silly or strange events. But, we wonder why someone would want to celebrate a toothache!? Unfortunately, we have yet to uncover a website or any written documentation about this day.
We suggest you use this day to promote good dental health for yourself and your family.
We suggest you participate in this day by learning or reviewing the cause of toothache and tooth decay. Pass this education along to your kids. If you have a toothache today, by all means, call your dentist.
How to Participate in Toothache Day
- Prevent toothaches by brushing your teeth and using dental floss.
- Promote dental health for you and your family.
- Whenever you have a toothache see a dentist immediately.

History and Origin of Toothache Day
When it comes to researching this holiday, we came up empty. Our research did not find the creator or the origin of this day. And the more perplexing question about this day is why does it exist?
There is some speculation that this date was selected because it is the date that Hershey Corporation was founded.
” Maybe this day celebrates the feast day of St Apollonia (d. 249). Apollonia is the patroness of dentists, and people suffering from toothache and other dental diseases often ask her intercession. She is pictured with a pair of pincers holding a tooth or with a golden tooth suspended from her necklace.” .. Josephine
