Winter vacation is quickly coming to an end and your little one will be back in the classroom before they know it. The hectic days before school kicks off can take up a big chunk of your time, but make sure to schedule a dental appointment for your child before their first day back to class. Doing so will help your little one fight off tooth decay along with those pesky Sugarbugs and will give them a brighter smile to show off during the rest of the school year. The heroic team at Little Heroes Pediatric Dentistry has prepared a list of the top three reasons why you should schedule a checkup before school begins.
Required by Some
Several school districts require a copy of the results of your child’s checkup before classes begin. To avoid any problem with the front desk, schedule your appointment today and avoid waiting until the very last minute. Even if your child’s school doesn’t require a checkup, have one done anyway to keep his or her teeth and gums healthy.
Professionals recommend a dental checkup on a timely basis, with many agreeing that six months should be the maximum amount of time between visits. If your child has not been to the dentist in the last six months, definitely schedule a visit before the school semester begins.
Prevent Missed Days
The last thing you want to do is make your child miss days of school because they need a routine checkup or an emergency visit to the dentist’s office. Avoid taking precious academic days from them by visiting a dentist before the first day back to school.
