Going back to school means many different things for kids, parents, and teachers. Now that it is August, it’s time to think about any dental visits you might need before the busy school season starts!
Parents: We know you want your kids to have a great smile for their annual school pictures. These are the images that relatives will receive and that you and your children will look back on when they grow up, and showing off those teeth in a genuine smile will create fond memories. We also know that your schedule is about to be packed with work, homework help and after-school extracurricular activities. Taking your child or yourself to the dentist is probably the last thing on your mind during school season, so this month is the best time to go!
Teachers: Though it seems easy enough to take a few hours or the day off to go to the dentist, we know it isn’t that simple. If something unexpected comes up that requires a more thorough procedure, you might end up needing more time off than you had planned for. Getting to know your students at the beginning of the school year is important, and every missed day counts. If you haven’t had your routine checkup in a while, August is the perfect time!
Back to school season is also a great time to get back into daily dental routines! Later summer nights and vacation time can often distract us from our usual brushing and flossing practices, and starting early in the school season can get us back into healthy cleaning habits. Check out some of our other blog posts for tips and tricks about getting your kids into good dental habits and routines.
