Back to School Check-Up

Time for a Back-to-School Checkup? Schedule Your Visit By Text

As the summer days grow a bit shorter and August settles in, one big thing is on the horizon: a new school year for your child. Every new year brings new possibilities and learning adventures, but it is also the perfect time to schedule your child’s back-to-school dental health checkup.

Why Schedule Dental Checkups Before Back to School?

Annual oral health screenings are incredibly important to a child’s overall health and well-being. So much so that some states actually require children to have a dental screening before starting school. Further, some schools request proof of dental health screening at the beginning of the school year to add to the child’s records.

The annual dental checkup involves:

  • Assessing for signs of bite issues that need to be addressed
  • Examining the teeth for signs of tooth decay that could pose problems
  • Cleaning the teeth thoroughly to remove plaque and tartar buildup
  • Checking for gum disease, which is growing increasingly common among children 

One often overlooked advantage of taking care of the annual checkup before the new school year is; that it can be easier to work in a time to come in when school is not in session. Once school starts, most students need appointments outside of school hours, which can make it more difficult to get in on a day and time you prefer.
