The Holistic Dentist Year in Review, 2012

As we enter the new year and approach our blog’s third anniversary, we take a quick look back at 2012 – a year in which our audience continued to grow. In fact, it nearly doubled over that time! And while most visits came from the US and other English-speaking countries, this blog was viewed from 156 different countries total.

Thanks to each of you for reading, commenting and sharing! All of us in Dr. Erwin’s office are grateful for your interest and support.
