Woo hoo! Kids are back to school and out of the house! But maybe you forgot one thing? Having your kids out of school for the past few months has probably been a certain amount of fun, but we are closing in on the end of summer and it’s time to send them back to school. You’ve done the clothes shopping, captured the school supplies, and now? It’s time for their back to school dentist appointment.
As we approach the start of a new school year, it’s time once again for establishing new routines or re-establishing old ones. Because it isn’t just back to school, of course. It’s back to scheduled bedtimes and alarm clock wake-ups. It’s back to scheduled mealtimes and (if you did take a little break from diligent oral hygiene) back to brushing and flossing.
There is no better way to reinforce to your child the necessity of great oral hygiene than with a visit to the dentist at back to school time. Our team will stress to your child the importance of sticking to a consistent schedule to keep his or her mouth healthy. Visiting the dentist twice a year is just as important as the daily brushing and flossing tasks, so tying one appointment to a specific time of year can really help everyone get into good habits.
Here at Finney Family Dentistry, we want to make sure your child gets a great start to the school year by helping them keep a healthy smile. Call now to schedule an appointment or get more information.
