Back To School For Your Kiddos: Your Agenda!

July 24, 2018

Your kids are having a blast! It’s still summer vacation, they don’t have any homework, and as far as they are concerned, there’s still plenty of time left to do everything and anything! However, from your adult perspective, you know that school days are just around the corner and while we’re not yet into August, there’s just a bit of precious time left! What to do for your back-to-school agenda as far as your children’s dental care needs are concerned, you begin asking yourself? Allow our Lake Orion, MI team to help you out with some potentially helpful ideas.

Sit Down To Map It All Out

If you haven’t really given your calendar a glance lately because you’ve been enjoying the “what day is it?” feeling that comes with summer break with your kiddos, then you might want to go ahead and pull that planner or calendar out. Take a look at the days left before school starts and ask yourself about how to best map out your children’s dental care from here on out. Will it work best for you to use one of the remaining days of summer to come on in? In all likelihood, the answer to that question is yes because it’s easier and it means your kids go back to the classroom with clean, healthy smiles. Remember, you can even spend this time figuring out your own visits and getting winter preventive visits on the books six months down the line, too!

Plan For A Cleaning And Checkup

Regardless of who you’re planning for, you can always remember that patients of all ages (which means every member of your family over the age of one) is going to need a cleaning and a dental checkup. We encourage you to schedule them very consistently, one visit every six months, for effective long-term preventive dental care.

Consider The Treatments That Offer Additional Protection

While any teens in your household are likely good to go with a before-school cleaning and checkup, the younger children may require some additional children’s dental care treatments for even more protection. If you haven’t talked with us about dental sealants and their ability to keep sugar, acids, and bacteria from affecting chewing surfaces, then now is the time! Place this barrier before the new school year and you’ll know you’ve got an extra measure in place!
