Plan ahead for Summer Dentist Appointments

If you find yourself delaying your dentist appointments throughout the school year, now is the perfect time to catch up. Schedule some time for family dentist appointments to get teeth cleanings, oral health exams, and routine checkups. Here are some tips from Clinton Dental Center to get ready for summer dentist appointments.

Summer Is the Perfect Time for Family Dentist Appointments

The summertime is ideal for dentist appointments because most children are out of school. You don’t have to worry about your child missing class for a portion of the day or coordinating around school events. Of course, you’ll want to plan around your family vacations and other activities you’re doing this summer. Clinton Dental Center has convenient office hours throughout the year to keep your family’s smiles shining bright.

Schedule Teeth Cleanings before School Starts

There’s something about getting your teeth cleaned that offers an instant boost of confidence. You can plan your teeth cleanings before the new school year so that your kids can walk around with pride. If any issues come up during the oral exam, you can get a head start on treatment plans and future schedule conflicts.

You could turn summer dentist appointments into a family tradition. Your children may feel more comfortable at the dentist when they become familiar with the pattern. Check out How to Help Your Child Overcome a Fear of the Dentist for more tips.

Use the Summer for Big Changes (Like Getting Braces)

If your child needs to start a long-term treatment plan, such as braces or palate expanders, you may want to start those in the summer. Some dental treatments are stressful for children, and that stress may impact their performance at school. Completing the changes over the summer gives them time to get used to their new smile and focus more on school when the time comes. Your dentist can personalize a treatment schedule that best suits your family.
