120/80....ok blood pressure?

A while back the dentist took my bp & when I left she approached me & said "just wanted you to know your bp was 120/80 today" ... & then wrote & dated on the back of a card for me..
I thought that was normal? Or is it borderline?...
Im 27.. 220lbs..

  • Its slightly high but Id expect that from the dentist. Most people DONT like the dentist.

  • No that bottom number should be around 70-75 to be considered healthy. My husband has high blood pressure and this is what is doctor told him.

  • That's not bad (the 80) since after all you were at the dentist & that could have raised your BP but I think it's odd that a Dentist would take your blood pressure??? I have never heard of that before.
