Back To School Dentist Appointment? Here Are 5 Reasons It’s Important..

Woo hoo! Kids are back to school and out of the house! But you forgot one thing!

Ready. Set. Get Them Out Of The House! Having your kids out of school for the past few months has been fun, but we are closing in on the end of summer and it is time to send them back to SCHOOL! You’ve done the clothes shopping, captured the school supplies, and now it is time for their back to school dentist appointment!

Here are the five reasons to take your kids to Dental Health Associates before school starts.

Tip #1: Teaching Kids How To Clean Their Teeth.

Can you hear yourself saying “You didn’t get the ones in the back enough!” or the huge fight every morning and at bed time. Let the professionals handle it! Dental Health Associates will make sure your child knows the consequences of poor oral care and show them the best way to care of their own teeth.

Tip #2: Adult Teeth Don’t Always Push Out Baby Teeth

Baby teeth may not always fall out even after the adult tooth breaks through the gums. Seeing the dentist on a semi annual basis can help avoid future issues. Baby teeth that do not fall out can cause crooked permanent teeth or cause other concerns. Not to worry, Dental Health Associates’ experienced dentists can assist with baby teeth to help avoid issues.

Tip #3: Skip The Disappointment And Make An Appointment

As soon as school starts you have soccer, dance, and many more extracurricular activities that your children love to participate in! Instead of adding to your busy schedule, make your appointment before school starts and make a day of it! Do I hear movie day??? Dentist appointment, lunch and the movies! Now that sounds like a great day with Mom!

Tip #4: Healthy Smile = Good Grades Based On A Statistic We Just Made Up

Bring headphones! Patients’ number one reason for not visiting the dentist is the noise from tools. Headphones help reduce the noise and keep you occupied while your dentist is cleaning your teeth.

Tip #5: Sets Them Up For Success

It’s healthy for children to have regular check-ups at least every six months. Help get them started by setting up an appointment. The more consistent you are, the more it becomes a regular habit. Set your kids up for success by contacting Dental Health Associates now!
