You’ve received the list of supplies and clothing requests in preparation for back to school but, is visiting the dentist anywhere on your child’s back to school plan? The DC Dentist encourages parents to make dental check up’s priority #1 before school starts.
Dental visits are important because a dentist can diagnose potential oral health problems such as tooth decay or gum disease and apply preventive measures as needed, including teeth cleaning, dental sealants, preventive treatments and instruction on good dental hygiene habits. The end of summer is an ideal time because it follows a season in which kids have indulged in treats like soda, ice cream and other sweet treats. The DC Dentist being a holistic, biological and eco-friendly dental office adds an extra boost that most dental offices don’t have in that our treatment is less invasive while utilizing the latest in dental technology.
While some kids and young adults don’t like going to the dentist, it’s important that routine exams be a regular part of their lives as they grow. Small children and young adults need regular dental cleanings and exams before back-to-school because a school day is not the time for your child to be distracted with tooth pain. Visit The DC Dentist for our back to school cleanings so that your child doesn’t miss a day of school unnecessarily.
