There are some very common excuses we hear from our patients as they explain why they haven’t scheduled a dental checkup in a long time. While they may feel like legitimate reasons to you, remember that they are most likely just what we said they are: Excuses! We are certainly not telling you this to be harsh. However, we want to remind you that if you’re feeling nervous, you’re trying to convince yourself that your smile is fine without prevention (though you know you need it), etc., you really will have a wonderful experience at our practice! So, consider some of the obstacles you’re putting in your way and come in to see our Lake Orion, MI team soon!
#1: I Probably Don’t Really Need One Right Now
You might tell yourself that your smile feels okay, you’re usually very good about coming in for dental care, you haven’t missed a single brushing or flossing session, etc. As a result, you figure coming in is just keeping up with a routine but that it’s probably not necessary. Think again! Coming in when all seems well is perfectly beneficial. Even in these times, we can occasionally discover the very, very earliest sign of a problem, so we can make it go away in an instant.
#2: I Just Can’t Remember To Schedule It
Our team is happy to offer you this helpful reminder: You need to set up some simple reminders when it comes to scheduling your dental checkups. Of course, the second you decide that your preventive care is worth it to you, you will most certainly find a way to jog your memory! Allow us to offer up some easy yet effective ways of keeping up with this task:
- If your spouse is more responsible with dates, then hand the dental visit planning over
- Keep a calendar or a planner and give yourself a quick note when it’s time to call us to set up your appointment
- Leave yourself notes wherever you know you’ll find them, so you can stop what you’re doing, call our practice, and schedule your next checkup
