Though it feels like school just let out, parents, teachers and college students are already thinking about the long list of tasks to complete before August and September come around. Summer is the one time of year that is free to make appointments and actually get to them, without having to worry about coordinating schedules, missing work or classes and taking kids out of school. 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!
Remember, getting an appointment for your six-month checkup or other dental work you need done is not always as easy as it sounds. During the summer, everyone is scrambling to get all of their health checkups done, and you’ll want to call in advance to schedule yours. July is the perfect month – if you can get an appointment soon, you won’t have to think about it for the rest of the summer, and if not, you’ll probably still be able to get one before school starts up again.
In the meantime, be sure you and your kids are keeping up with dental routines throughout the summer. Vacations and trips can distract from your normal routine, and it’s always a good idea to double-check your luggage for all of your toothbrushes, floss and toothpaste. We know you’ll want to hit the beach as soon as you get to your destination – not head to the store for all of the items you forgot!
