With the summer rapidly coming to a close, it’s time to start getting your child ready to go back to school. While you and your child will probably be busy with back to school shopping and other errands, it’s a good idea to get your child to the dentist before school is back in session.
Here are just a few reasons why it’s a good idea to schedule a dental appointment before the summer ends.
Your child’s schedule becomes less flexible once school starts
It’s inevitable. As soon as school starts, your child’s schedule will quickly be filled with homework, extracurriculars and spending time with friends. It can be difficult to squeeze a dental appointment in before school, and often times, extracurricular activities last into the evening — well after the dentist office is closed.
By scheduling a dental appointment before school starts, you can make sure your child gets the dental care and attention he or she needs without trying to fit the appointment in somewhere in their busy schedule.
A clean bright smile is a confidence booster
One of the best ways to make sure your child is happy and smiling at school is to ensure that they are confident with their smile. Going to the dentist means a deep and thorough cleaning of your child’s teeth, which means their mouth will feel cleaner and healthier than it did before.
You can help your child start the school year on the right foot by sending them with a healthy and sparkling set of teeth.
Easier to get additional dental work done
Sometimes, a routine dental cleaning will uncover additional dental work that needs to be done. Cavities and other dental procedures typically require additional appointments, which can be difficult to schedule once school starts. By getting the cleaning and checkup taken care of before school starts, you’ll still have time to handle any unexpected cavities.
