Top Reasons for a Back-to-School Checkup

  • Posted on: Aug 23 2013

As the summer comes to a close and the school year approaches, it’s important for patients to  start looking into scheduling their child a routine dental visit. Dental decay is the leading chronic disease among children, and one of the most effective methods of treating this condition is prevention.  Routine appointments are an important step in a child’s dental health and well-being.

When you bring your children to any of our offices, no matter what age they are, we make it our job to keep them comfortable and stress-free throughout their entire visit. Dental examinations can help instill good hygiene practices in children, and help ensure that they keep their smiles bright and healthy. Let’s take a look at some of the reasons why a checkup is so important for your child.

Top 3 Reasons to Schedule Your Child for a Dental Checkup

  1. Required. Many schools require the results of a dental checkup in the beginning of each year. With the school year rapidly approaching, it is imperative that parents begin scheduling appointments now.
  2. Six months. Every patient, young or old, should undergo routine checkups in a timely basis. Typically, if you or your child has not gone to the dentist in the last six months, it’s time for them to have a dental examination.
  3. Time sensitive. Besides school approaching and six months passing, the immediate need to schedule an appointment comes from the fact that many other parents have already booked theirs. If you want your child to keep a bright, healthy smile before school, call ASAP so you don’t miss your chance for an appointment.
