It won’t be long until the last-minute lunch making and after-school activities start. Take advantage of the calm before the storm. Save your family stress and get your kids to the dentist now.
Here are 3 benefits to getting those summer dental appointments over with:
Beat the Back-to-School Rush
BTS season is a hectic few weeks of last-minute preparation, and unfortunately, most people wait until the last minute to get appointments scheduled. While we applaud getting to the dentist before school starts, save time and get to the dentist when appointments are more readily available.
Stop Skipping School
More than 30% of parents in the United States reported their child missed school due to an oral health problem. Address problems now to save valuable learning time during the school year.
Healthy Teeth = Happy Smiles
Tooth decay in children impacts more than their oral health, it also affects their intellectual and social development. Children can develop poor speech articulation, reluctance to smile, and low self-esteem if tooth decay is left untreated.
Encourage your child to have healthy oral habits at home all year long, in addition to taking preventive measures like having your dentist apply sealants. Doing so can prevent cavities and tooth decay.
