Great Gifts to Make Your Grad Smile

Graduation is right around the corner! If you can’t decide what to get your graduate, Dr. Greenfield suggests giving your grad the gift of a great smile. A bright smile will improve your child’s health, appearance, and confidence as he or she heads into college and the working world.

Dental Hygiene

While away at college, many students increase their consumption of sugary snacks, alcoholic beverages, and energy drinks—all of which contribute to tooth decay and gum disease. Additionally, many students get so overwhelmed with their academics that they neglect proper dental hygiene. Peer pressure and homework assignments may stress your student and cause bruxism. As your child packs for college,  make sure these products are included in the suitcase:

  • Toothbrush
  • Floss
  • Mouthwash
  • Tongue scraper
  • Mouth guard

Furthermore, remind your child to schedule a professional cleaning and checkup with Dr. Greenfield when he or she comes home for breaks and vacations.

Cosmetic Improvements

Children go to college to excel in a great career, but studies show that a bright smile may influence their accomplishments. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry reports that people who smile are more popular and more successful than their serious peers. Dr. Greenfield offers gift certificates to our Lake Orion dentist office so graduates can select the cosmetic treatment they desire.

Dr. Greenfield will help keep your child’s smile bright and healthy from childhood through adulthood. Contact Lake Orion Family Dentistry at (248) 693-6213 to schedule an appointment. We welcome families from Lake Orion, Oxford, Rochester Hills, Clarkston, and surrounding communities.
