Myth: I can’t donate if I’ve just been to the dentist.
Here’s the Truth
It is perfectly acceptable to donate blood after seeing the dentist as long as you only underwent a standard procedure such as a cleaning. If an infection was present, wait until you complete your antibiotics before you donate again.
