Look out! It’s school time again!

Did you let the summer fly right by? Did pools, cookouts, and parades crowd out your normally scheduled appointments? It’s not too late to catch up. It’s time to schedule your check-up. Scheduling your children’s’ checkups at the start of the school year can set a good habit of regularly scheduled visits to the dentist. At the Greatest Smiles on Earth, we really love helping kids improve their oral health, appearance, and overall confidence with regular checkups.

And did you know that a recent study published in the Journal of Public Health, discovered that between 58 and 80 hours of school were missed due to dental issues in students between the ages of 5 and 17? The parents of those students missed an average of 2.5 work days to take their child to their pediatric dentist. Preventive care is proactive care.

While accidents and emergencies can’t be predicted, setting good habits of brushing, flossing, and avoiding sugary snacks can. Regular check-ups are key to making sure your kids’ oral health stays healthy as your children grow up. Ensure a winning smile for those graduation photos. Call us today for a free orthodontic assessment, a check-up, and we can tell you how to gear up for fall with sports- and brace-friendly mouth guards for the new season’s sports! Start the school year right!
